It’s a form of torture, together with the constant pressure exerted on The Five and their relatives and the changeable US judicial system and its prison regime, added Palmeiro. She said that these five revolutionaries have been denied permission to receive visits and the possibility of meeting their loved ones again.
Likewise, she stressed that the final objective of the US judicial system is to undermine the will and determination of The Five, who have been in prison since 1998 without evidence of the commission of any crime.
Their main concern, she emphasized, was their wish to defend their people from terrorist actions conceived in south Florida.
She underlined that US President Barack Obama has the power to set them free. Olga Salanueva, wife of Rene Gonzalez, said that the empire ha used all its weapons of torture, among them the absolute silence of the media, hatred and impunity, reasons for which she asked the international community to face it with the power of dignity, love and solidarity.
Nuris Piñeiro, member of the team of lawyers of the families of The Five, commented that this case has been riddled with injustices.
There are children who have grown up without seeing their parents, a mother who died without seeing her son again, and married couples that have not been able to meet again, and these are tortures opening wounds that last forever, she pointed out. Participating in the meeting were representatives of political, mass and solidarity organizations, as well as guests.
