THE initiative Voices for the Five, supported by important figures on a world scale, is undertaking an intense schedule of activities to demand the liberation of the Cuban anti-terrorists imprisoned in the United States, including the convocation of an International Investigation Commission to review the case, which will be held in London, March 7-8, 2014.
Belgian activist Katrien Demuynck, president of the Socialist Cuba Initiative Association and coordinator of the Committee for the Five in Europe, reported in Havana, October 31, that the Commission will take place in London’s emblematic Law Society and participants will include family members of the Five, victims of terrorist attacks in Cuba, outstanding experts, attorneys and political figures.
According to Demuynck, who is also part of the Voices for the Five campaign, the Commission will publicize evidence about anti-Cuban terrorist groups based in the United States and the right of countries to defend themselves from this type of aggression will also be discussed.
Voices for the Five is an international coalition of activists, solidarity groups, jurists, human rights organizations, political figures and trade unionists fighting to free the Five, which includes more than 300 distinguished individuals internationally, according to the group’s website www.voicesforthefive.com.
John Le Carré, Noam Chomsky, Wayne Smith, Günter Grass, Miguel Barnet, Ramsey Clark, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Nancy Morejón and Emma Thompson are among the sponsors of the campaign to demand freedom for the Cuban Five.
