Italian journalist Gianni Min Speaks Out On Cuban Five Case
Bayamo, Apr 11.- Italian journalist and filmmaker Gianni Min spoke about the injustice in the case of the five Cuban antiterrorists imprisoned in the United States for more than ten years now. Speaking from the city of Bayamo, Granma, Min said that the case has shown arbitrariness right from the beginning.
The Cuban Five —Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labaino and Rene Gonzalez— have been held in US jails since September 1998. Parliamentarians, lawyers, 10 Nobel Prize winners, and human rights advocates from around the world have submitted a petition to have the US Supreme Court review the case.
Min is in Cuba filming a new documentary in several cities about the current state of the country at a time of great historical significance for the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean. He said the documentary will also reveal what motivates Cubans to continue in their struggle, after 50 years of US aggressions.
On Thursday, during his stay in Bayamo, the Italian journalist and filmmaker spoke with students and teachers from the Manuel Muoz Cedeo School of Art and filmed a dance class.
He also visited The Beatles cultural and recreational complex, and toured the city's historical area, where he visited the first Revolution Square built in Cuba. (ACN)
