International Meeting Demands Cuban Five Be Released

Havana, Apr 29 (Prensa Latina) The nearly nine-year imprisonment of five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters in United States shows Washington's real position as to terrorism, Cuba's Young Communist League (UJC) first secretary Julio Martinez stated on Sunday.

Martinez is participating in an international youth meeting in solidarity with the Cuban Five, taking place in this capital attended by student and juvenile delegations from 46 countries.

"We can not accept imprisonment to those who fight so terrible problem and release those who practice it," stated the UJC leader referring to the release on bail by US authorities of international criminal Luis Posada Carriles.

The Five, as Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon LabaƱino, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez are universally known, are serving harsh sentences until double life imprisonment in US jails.
