Miami: billboard to the Cuban Five taken down

• FOR 24 hours an air of tolerance and freedom of expression could be breathed in Miami. But not for much longer. On January 11, exercising its right to freedom of opinion, the Martí Alliance, an organization of Cubans and Latin Americans advocating relations of friendship and mutual respect between the United States and the free nations of America, attempted to express a message of solidarity and a demand for the release of the five Cuban anti-terrorists unjustly incarcerated in U.S. jails.

As we published in the last edition of Granma International, a billboard with the faces of the five anti-terrorist patriots, surrounded by a beautiful Cuban flag and demanding their liberation, could be seen on the central 37th Street in the northwest of Miami, with no other intention than to call for the justice denied them in a Federal Court in south Florida, a billboard for which the organization had a contract with Clear Channel Communications, Inc.

The text simply stated: “Free the Cuban Five.” •
