"TODAY is a day when our pain, as Fidel said, is not shared, it is multiplied.
Our forces and arguments continue to be multiplied as well, in our battle against imperialism and terrorism," said Aylín Labañino, daughter of Ramón, one of the five Cuban anti-terrorists unjustly imprisoned in the United States, in her comments at the conclusion of the vigil held on the evening of October 5.
Hundreds of young people responded to the call made by the Union of Young Communists, to honor the victims of state terrorism against Cuba, which took place at the José Martí Anti-imperialist Tribunal’s Monte de Las Banderas. Especially remembered were those who died in the October 6, 1976 in-flight bombing of a Cubana Airlines plane near Barbados and calls for the release of the Cuban Five were repeated many times.
Participating along with family members of the Five, and of victims of the airliner bombing, were Guyana’s ambassador to Cuba, Mitradevi Ail; Venezuelan ambassador Edgardo Antonio Ramírez; Graciella Ramírez, president of the International Committee to Free the Five, among many others.
