Obama: The World is Waiting for a Gesture From You. Free The Cuban 5 Now!
On the fifth of each month for the past sixteen months, without interruption, various personalities from the U.S. and other countries have sent letters to President Obama at the White House expressing their concern for the Cuban 5 and calling for their release. The authors of these letters have included intellectuals, religious leaders, trade unionists, actors, writers, lawyers and academics, to this date none of them have received a response.
On this October 5th, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 reiterates what was expressed in a letter that on September 12 was rejected by a security guard of the White House and was sent by postal mail. “The Five committed no crime, and did not threaten U.S. national security…As you know, the Five were arrested on September 12, 1998. The Chief of the FBI in Miami, Héctor Pesquera, used tremendous resources to arrest them…” “The FBI and government agencies knew that the Five posed no threat to U.S. national security, as was testified by General James Clapper, your current Director of National Intelligence, and other high ranking officials during the trial.” “With profound concern we ask ourselves if the unjust imprisonment of these men and the outrageous sentences against them were in fact a political vengeance.”
