Cuban Religious Leaders Support Cuban Five CauseHAVANA, Cuba, Jun 6 (acn) Cuban religious personalities extended their solidarity with the cause of the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters who were given unfair prison sentences in the United States for considering it as a venerable example of commitment to the well-being of their fellow men.

Theologians, lawyers and member of different religious denominations rejected the injustice made by US authorities against Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino and Antonio Guerrero, three of the five Cubans who were submitted to unfair incarceration after they infiltrated Florida-based violent organizations that planned terrorist actions against Cuba.

Theologian Luis Carlos Marrero stressed the ethical and human factors that have turned the Cuban Five case into a significant event that incarnated the Theology of Liberation in Latin America. The Cuban antiterrorists are an example of those people, who respect and still build justice, said some of the participants in a space for reflection within the Cuban religious community.

Elizabeth Palmeiro, wife of Ramon Labanino expressed her gratefulness of the support given by the religious groups and stressed the fact that a pastoral platform in favor of the Cuban Five was set up to unite believers of different churches around the case.

The meeting was attended by officials from the Communist Party's Religious Affairs Office and other authorities.
