Washington, Jan 3.- The International Committee for the release of the Cuban antiterrorists imprisoned in United States called internet users from all over the world to publish the messages on Sunday on Twitter social network, demanding the release of those men.
The virtual meeting will take place during the day 5 with the labels:
#Obamaliberalos5ya! #ObamaFreetheFiveNow!; #ObamaGivemeFive and #ObamaGestoHumanitarioxlos5! And Hill be the first global initiative of 2014 in solidarity with Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando González.
Those men and their fellowcountryman René Gonzalez, already released, were arrested in September, 1998, while monitoring the actions from violent groups in the South of Florida, from where they were planning actions like those that in the last 53 years killed more than 4,400 people in Cuba.
René González was released in October, 2011, after serving his sentence and returned to his country last May where he resigned to his US citizenship, to end an additional punishment of three years under supervised release.
The Committee called the international community, too to get in contact with the White House by telephone, fax, or sending e-mails and post cards to put pressure on President Barack Obama to release the Cuban fighters and allow them to return to their mother land.
Last Year twitter action joined the voices of thousand of people, political parties, media and social organizations from Brazil, Colombia, Spain, Bolivia, Germany and Venezuela, among others.
Many comments insisted on the fact that if Obama wanted, the antiterrorists would be free and could return home.
Others urged US president to honour at least once the Nobel Peace Prize he obtained and put end to the enclosure and the violations of human rights of those men. (Prensa Latina)
