Cuban Five Ad Published in The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald
Jan. 24, 1011
The organizations that make up the Alianza Martiana are pleased to announce that today, Monday, Jan. 24, an ad by the Alianza Martiana, demanding freedom for the Cuban Five, was published in the print editions of The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald. It is the same advertisement demanding freedom for the Five that was placed on a billboard in Miami on Jan. 11.
On that occasion, due to intimidation by the extreme rightwing, the company that owns the billboard withdrew the billboard 24 hours after it was placed. This shows once more, the intolerant, wrathful and anti-democratic character of the Cuban-American extreme right in Miami.
The published ads of the Alianza Martiana today in The Miami Herald and in El Nuevo Herald are one more example of our uncompromising commitment with justice and our demand that freedom be granted to the Cuban Five immediately through a presidential pardon.
The national campaign in the United States and the worldwide campaign in countries on every continent is widening and deepening. Our example here in Miami will give incentive to the rest of the worldwide movement that demands the immediate freedom of the Five.
We will not cease in our efforts until the Five are free.
