HAVANA, Cuba.- Members of the Occupy Wall Street movement will join this Friday in Washington the campaign for the release of the five Cuban antiterrorists unjustly serving sentences in the United States.
Alicia Jrapko, US Coordinator of the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five, told ACN news agency, via phone call, that among other activities they are carrying out in the US capital, several activists of the Occupy movement will join them on a march in front of the White House.
“We will be accompanied by Danny Glover, Saúl Landau, Salim Lamrani and Wayne Smith, among other personalities, and we hope many others join us today” Jrapko said.
She announced that on Saturday many people who have shown their solidarity towards the case of the Cuban Five will drive from New York in a four-hour rally to express their support to the campaign.
Renowned activist Cindy Sheehan will attend the closing day; Jrapko said and added that all these activities will boost the work they are doing to secure the freedom of the Cuban patriots.
She said there are three teams of activists that arrived from different countries are handing out flyers at the metro entrances and other strategic places throughout the city.
“I think this is the first time that the campaign for the Cuban Five is so massively spread” she concluded.
