On April 5, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five placed an enormous poster in the middle of the intense morning traffic on one of the freeways in the field of the Bay of San Francisco, California.
Thousands of persons that were travelling at this hour round the Interstate freeway, could read the message “Obama, Free the Cuban Five!”
The Committee summoned also to a day called “Five Days for the Cuban Five” from April 17 until next April 21, in which diverse actions are foreseen in the Congress by means of the delivery to conferees and senators of information printed on their situation.
The acquaintances are worldwide since the Five were arrested on September 12, 1998 in the city of Miami and submitted since then to an unjust and severe trial.
An irregular process celebrated there condemned them in 2001 to sentences going from 15 years up to the double life imprisonment.
World personalities, civil affiliations and governmental representatives have defended the Five, and remember that only they were controlling the activity of extremist groups of Cuban origin in New Jersey and Florida, trying to be anticipating to their terrorist actions and to assemble tests on possible attacks.
