Some months ago I could enjoy a clip where the great musician Paul McCartney was awarded the Gershwin Prize for popular song and music. It was a beautiful event, precisely in the White House. You, your wife and your beautiful children and many other congressmen, and important personalities participated.
I was really moved to see your girls and your wife enjoy the show of such a world class musician. I then wondered, why is Gerardo Alfonso still imprisoned without the possibility of not even raising his own family? His wife, Adriana hasn’t been given the chance to visit him in the USA, and their time to raise a family is almost gone.
Mr. President, Gerardo and the other two Cuban prisoners still in US jails are INNOCENT. Many voices in the world are calling for their liberation. It is up to you, to set them free.
Please, do it soon. We hope you are humane to understand that it is a matter of justice.
A humble woman who believes the world would appreciate your kindness if you set them free now.
