Santiago de Chile, Jun 6 (Prensa Latina) Two personalities of solidarity with Cuba and Chile highlighted the importance of the fight for the release of the three Cuban heroes serving unfair sentences in the United States.
In a conversation with Prensa Latina, Sandra Rojas, responsible for the Committe for the Release of the Cuban Five, and Luis Atenas, leader of Christian Democrats, reiterated the commitment of many Chileans to the cause.
Rojas stressed that to keep claiming the freedom of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino and Antonio Guerrero is a moral duty, “when evidencies about their innocence are greater than ever”.
We like to support this cause with everything in our power; we send letters each month to the U.S. embassy with the signature of parlament members and personalities of politics and culture of Chile, she said.
Meanwhile, Luis Atenas said that the main goal of the Committtee Radomiro Tomic that he leads is to raise piblic awareness among political parties on the case of the Cuban five.
Yesterday, renowned Chilean lawyers, solidarity groups and diplomats, addressed the current situation of Gerardo, Ramon y Tony (Guerrero) in an evening in the headquarters of the National Congress in the capital.
In this context, the incorporation of young deputy and former student leader Camila Vallejo to the international campaign for the freedom of the Cuban five was announced.
Vallejo wrote a letter to U.S. President, Barack Obama, to demand a gesture of the president in favor of the Cuban five imprisoned for over 15 years.
