Boston Wants Cuban 5 Free

Washington, Aug 9 (Prensa Latina) Representatives from several organizations of solidarity with Cuba is expected to rally in front of a subway in Boston, Massachusetts, to demand the release of five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters unfairly imprisoned in United States.
Alicia Jrapko, member of the of the International Committee to Free the Five, told Prensa Latina that the demonstration will take place next days, prior the August 20 hearing in Atlanta.
Participants in the rally will distribute information on the case and details of the hearing among passers-by, said Jrapko, who also expects the presence of lawyers throughout the world in that hearing.
"Their presence," stated the activist, "will guarantee that when returning their countries or states, they can take the case to their organizations and join the struggle for the release of the Cuban Five." Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino and Rene Gonzalez are currently in US prisons since September 12, 1998, for having infiltrated terrorist groups working in Miami.
Their sentences ran from 15 years to double life terms, the latter to Gerardo Hernandez.
In the August 20 hearing in the US Court of Appeals 11th Circuit in Atlanta, the Cuban Five defense team will denounce political manipulations of the case, and according to attorney Leonard Weinglass, present three topics of appeal on their favor.
"We have a number of topics to present before judges, but the most important ones are if Cause No. 3 against Gerardo Hernandez proceed or not, US attorney John Kastrenakes" bad behavior in his final allegation of the case, and sentences by Hernandez, Guerrero and Labanino, condemned to double life imprisonments," noted Weinglass.
