The National Network of Solidarity with Cuba in the US is gearing up for a march to take place in New York to demand the release of the five Cubans unfairly imprisoned in that country.
Prensa Latina news agency reported that more than 70 institutions from all over the country are working on the details of the demonstration, scheduled for the coming April 7.
The National Network has called for participants to denounce the violations of the human rights of the five Cubans and their families by the White House.
The Five, as Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez are internationally known, have been imprisoned in American jails since 1998 for infiltrating into Mimi-based anti-Cuba groups with the objective of preventing terrorist activities against the Cuban people and government.
In more that four decades those groups have caused the death of thousands of people and heavy economic loses.
At the April march in New York, demonstrators are expected to also demand the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington against Cuba since early in the 1960’s.
They will denounce in particular President Bush’s plan to destroy the Cuban revolution and Washington’s hostility against the people of Venezuela.
