Next September 12th, it will be 10 years of the unjust and illegal imprisonment of the Five Cuban Heroes considered fighters against terrorism. They had neither weapons nor explosive. They didn’t mean a threat against national integrity of the North American territory, like they are accused of. The five didn’t involve themselves in any act of classified information. Their actions didn’t interfere North American national security. What our patriots were really looking for was information about plans and actions from terrorist groups supported by U.S.A government that tried to destroy the Cuban Revolution and our main leader, Fidel Castro.
Fighting for their return has been very long as well as the efforts carried out by the Solidarity Movement with Cuba through different actions. Today, we are completely sure that only with your support as well as the international public opinion, the Five will return to their homeland some day. When it happens, we have really won the battle. Practically, it has been demonstrated that their return is not possible following legal procedures. Judicial system that involves the case is designed to lengthen the process for an indefinite time. Appeal process began in 2001. So far, we haven’t had any concrete result.
Next September, a world campaign demanding their liberation will take place. We call on all of you to be part of it as well as taking part in actions that will be carried out. It is important to continue working to incorporate outstanding personalities from all sectors to work in favour of this cause as well as to increase pressure of the solidarity forces from Asia-Pacific region on the North American government, claiming their liberation and making possible that people from U.S.A know the truth about the case and dispose themselves to fight for their freedom. It’s there, in the United States, where we should really influence on.
It is necessary to work with law sector of your countries as well as to approach the case in bulletins, radio programs and web sites of the associations and groups of friendship. In every activity of solidarity with Cuba that you carry out, you can include the topic and try to approve supporting resolutions.
We inform you about the web site www.antiterroristas.cu .You will be able to have updated information on the case through this site.
We request you to send us reports of all actions that you undertake. Therefore, we reiterate our email address, which is: firstname.lastname@example.org

We thank in advance your unconditional support and solidarity shown during years to the just cause of the Cuban people and for the return of Five brave men whose only crime was saving human lives.
