More Jamaicans in Solidarity with the Cuban Five

2010.04.16 - 13:47:50 /

HAVANA, CUBA.- More voices continue joining in Jamaica the campaign of solidarity with the five Cuban antiterrorists unfairly incarcerated in the United States.


Jamaican students carried out a forum on this case at the conference hall of the Technological University (UTEC) of Kingston, which had Cuba’s ambassador to Jamaica, Yuri Gala, among participants, the Cuban Foreign Ministry’s web site reports.   


Also participating were Temmard Burtterfield, president of the Association of Students of UTEC; Angella Brown Burke, vice-president of the National Popular Party; and Russell Bell, member of the Committee for the release of The Five.


The round of questions and answers made it possible to give students more details on this case. Participants coincided in condemning the absurd imprisonment of the Cuban patriots.


A similar condemnation took place last month in Kingston, on the part of members of the YES CUBA Committee for the Release of The Five, the Cuba-Jamaica Friendship Association, and the Venceremos Group.


In a statement, these groups denounced the double standard policy of the US government, which arbitrarily condemned these Cuban antiterrorism fighters while protecting terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, the confessed author of the explosion in mid air of a Cubana airliner, which resulted in the death of all of its passengers and crew.
