Call to Women around the World

From National Secretariat – Federation of Cuban Women


At a time when, once again, humanity faces the danger of a nuclear war, we must join ourselves in defence of life. That is why, the Federation of Cuban Women, calls all women and men of good will, to add to the claim of over four million Cuban women, who together with its people, demand the freedom of five of its compatriots unjustly imprisoned in The United States.

This September 12, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Lavañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, and Rene Gonzales have spent 12 years in cruel confinement. The long period of this injustice, is not only intended to punish the five anti-terrorist fighters, but also their families, particularly Olga Salanueva and Adriana Perez, whose right of visiting their husbands has been denied.

A wall of silence has been raised by the big media transnationals so that this truth be unknown. But as José Martí said, “one just principle from the depths of a cave, is stronger than an army”.

Let us raise our voices to demand of the US government the immediate release of these men, whose courage and exceptional ethical dimension, are recognised today by personalities from the whole world.

Women, life- deliverers, appreciate the value of the family and know the power of solidarity. Let’s join in all actions that contribute to publicize this case and put pressure on the US public and its authorities.

Sisters of the world, we count on you so that our five sons, who we consider heroes, true representatives of a people, that love freedom and peace return home.

End to injustice, free them now!
