Thousands of people from around the world participated in a Twitter action for the Cuban Five on Sunday which denounced the hostile media campaign launched in Miami during the biased trial held against the five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters, who were given unfair and extremely long prison sentences in 2001.

CIA-linked Miami sources paid for at least one thousand press notes with false information against five Cubans being tried at the time in that city, fifteen years ago, for monitoring terrorist activities against the Island, the messages published on the social network read.

Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez and Ramón Labañino monitored Miami-based violent organizations that planned terrorist actions against Cuba.

Money from Federal funds was used in Miami during the trial to ensure a press climate hostile to the defendants. Over one thousand false press reports have been documented, as confirmed by the information released on the web on Sunday.

Some of the messages in the web this Sunday included those from the Guyana Solidarity movements calling for freedom, as well as from writer Stephen Kimber, who announced that he will visit Vancouver in March to publicly talk there about the Cuban Five.

Canadian activist Nino Pagliccia, wrote: “ Day of action for the #CubanFive in #Vancouver Jan 51”; while Italian musician Daniel Sepe also demanded freedom for the Cuban Five.
