Cubans and Foreign Students in Camagüey to Claim Freedom for the Cuban Five
Camagüey, Jun 15.- Workers of electronic and computer-related company COPEXTEL in Camagüey province, together with foreign students will climb Tuabaquey Hill –the highest elevation in this province- to raise their voices in favour of the Cuban Five who have been serving unjust sentences in US jails since 1998.
This initiative was an action coordinated by by Carlos Galindo, who works at the Camagüey-based company, as part of the solidarity project Baraguá and emerged on the occasion of the Father’s Day and the third anniversary of the setting up of a big star statue on that hill.
Galindo also explained that the group that he leads is made up by former high-level sportspeople like former world amateur boxing champions Adolfo Horta and Bernardo Comas. In addition, he stated that climbing Tuabaquey Hill is also a way to pay tribute to Teófilo Stevenson, who passed away this week on June 11th.
“Teófilo always supported our project, and even participated in actions we organized in solidarity with the Cuban Five, which coincided with his visit to Camagüey”, pointed out Galindo.
This Saturday’s solidarity move proves that the world will continue denouncing the unjust imprisonment of these patriots till they do not return to Cuba. (Yamylé Fernández Rodriguez/Radio Cadena Agramonte).
