During a political-cultural event at the end of a march staged by thousands of women in Holguin for the release of the five anti-terrorists Cuban fighters held in US prisons, Sheehan gave the Cuban mothers a chain that her son Casey had give to her.
"This chain says: To Mum, with Love. I want you to have this, my most precious possession. I would like you to keep it until your sons return home, and have it back later," she told Mirtha Rodriguez (the mother of Antonio) and Magali Llort (mather of Fernando).
Sheehan said that she loves the relatives of The Cuban Five with all her heart, and reaffirmed the support of thousands of US people to the Cuban Revolution and the struggle for the release of Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez and Ramon Labanino, who were given unfair, harsh prison sentences in the United States for informing their country on anti-Cuban actions by Miami-based terrorist groups.
The activist reiterated her solidarity and love for this people that fight for peace and justice, which, in her opinion, lacks the necessary strength in her country.
Sheehan led a march on Saturday along relatives of The Cuban Five and victims of the mid-air explosion of a Cuban airliner in 1976 that resulted in the death of all 73 people on board.
The march was part of the agenda of the 7th International Colloquium for the Release of The Cuban Five and against Terrorism, attended by some 300 delegates from 50 countries.
The four-day meeting is scheduled to end today with a Final Declaration. (Prensa Latina)
