Chiclayo, Peru, Aug 20 (Prensa Latina) The 13th Peruvian Congress of Solidarity with Cuba sued today in this city the immediate release of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in the United States.
The event, which concluded in this northern Peruvian city, called to persist in the struggle for the freedom and return to their homeland of Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino and Fernando Gonzalez, "a task that embodies dignity and human justice."
A statement from the meeting about the issue also demands "the end of awkward actions against the Five, as they are universally known, by the U.S. government and judicial authorities of that country" and to allow wives, mothers and children of the Five to visit them, while the "aberrant situation and a violation of the law persist."
The text also denounces the restrictions that prevent Olga Salanueva and Adriana Perez, wives of Rene and Gerardo, respectively, to visit them in prison. The latter attended as a guest a meeting held in Chiclayo and received great examples of solidarity. The announcement also stated the immediate return to Cuba of Rene Gonzalez, who, after completing his prison term, has been remained captive in U.S. territory, with risk for his life given to the prevailing anti-Cuban atmosphere in that southern U.S. city
