*Int´t Forum of Solidarity with the Cuban Five
Ramirez made her statement in the context of the 7th International Colloquium for the Freedom of the Cuban Five and against Terrorism, which is taking place in the eastern Cuban city of Holguin with the participation of over 300 delegates from 47 countries.
Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando González are serving sentences that include up to double life term plus 15 years for having informed Cuba about criminal plans hatched by Florida-based anti-Cuba organizations.
In conversation with PL news agency, Ramirez described as dangerous the forced stay of Gonzalez in any US city or state, because the Cuban Five denounced “this terrible mafia that has murdered so many innocents.”
The forum, which concludes on November 19, is being attended by delegates from Venezuela, Bolivia, Canada, Bulgaria, the United States and other nations.
Renowned US activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq while serving with the US occupation forces, is attending the forum and will lead an International women´s march against war in the eastern city of Holguin.
