HAVANA, Cuba, June 13 (acn) Paraguay’s Deputy Youth Minister Diana Garcia said the cause of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters imprisoned in the US –known as the Cuban Five– is fair and lawful for any government
fighting to maintain the sovereignty of its people.
Garcia, who arrived in Havana Sunday evening, is taking part of the working sessions of the Third International Youth Meeting of Solidarity with the Cuban Five.
The Paraguayan official said it was a privilege for her that her first visit to Cuba was to be alongside the younger generations of Cuba and the world in the claim for the release of Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez whom she described as valuable men.
In statements to ACN, Garcia admitted that in his country very little is known about the Cuban Five, and considered it necessary to multiply by all means the information about the case and solidarity, particularly among the young people.
Garcia added that today’s information and communication technologies could be determining in winning this “fight for truth and justive” in reference to that for the release of the Cuban Five.
“We have to learn [about the Cuban Five], investigate, and become interested and raise other people’s interest, and spread and intensify the campaign for the Cuban Five,” Garcia insisted and went on to add that in her country, as well as in the rest of the world, much more can be done to bring the Cuban Five back to Cuba.
Once the meeting concludes, Garcia will remain in Cuba to fulfill a working agenda that includes a visit to the Havana-based Latin American Medical School where some 300 Paraguayans are studying.
Likewise, she will have the opportunity to learn about the efforts, policies and results regarding the education of the younger generations and the work of the Youth Studies Center of the Youth Communist League and other relevant institutions.
