The Final Declaration of the Forum, which brought together
in Havana more than 180 representatives of youth
organizations and movements from 33 countries in Europe,
Asia, Africa, the Middle East and The Americas since
Saturday, calls not to cease the demand so US President
Barack Obama puts an end to the cruel imprisonment of these
five heroic men.
Liudmila Alamo, member of the Central Committee of the Cuban
Communist Party and of the Council of State of the Republic
of Cuba, and first secretary of the Young Communists League
read the document, a real declaration of principles and a
program of action to break the wall of silence around the
case of these patriots.
The release of Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon
Labañino and Fernando and Rene Gonzalez is not only a task
of Cuba, but a commitment we youngsters of the world assume,
called by their dignity and heroism, an example and
inspiration for those who struggle against imperialism and
terrorism, for peace and justice, reads the Declaration.
Likewise, it expresses the willingness of youngsters of
multiplying, by way of all means and forums possible, the
actions of solidarity and this battle, essentially
political, intensify pressure and the demand for their
release and the world campaign in favor of five innocent men
and their relatives, also the victims of such colossal
Likewise, to emphasize the spreading of the case of The
Five, the large amount of arguments and evidence of their
absolute innocence, the reasons for their presence in the
US, the judicial farce, manipulations and arbitrariness to
inform the truth to the world, to sensitize and mobilize
public opinion, will also be essential.
This call to struggle also highlights the demand for
Miami-Based terrorist organizations and the protection of
the US government to be dismantled, and the end of impunity
for the assassins of the peoples.
Attending the closing of the event were Kenia Serrano,
president of the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the
Peoples; Graciela Ramirez, coordinator of the International
Committee for the Freedom of The Five; and relatives of
Tony, Gerardo, Rene, Ramon and Fernando.
