The Kenya Cuba Friendship Society (KCFS) and the Pro-liberation Committee for the Five, Congratulates the Cuban Five (René González, Fernando González, and now Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero and Ramón Labañino) on the completion of their release from the United States prisons, where they were unjustly jailed in a process that took political, rather than legal path.
It is difficult to put into words the jubilant feelings that KCFS members felt (and are still feeling) when the announcement of their release was made known by the international media.
We also congratulate the families of the Five, the Government and people of Cuba, and ICAP for sustaining the campaign for the freedom of the Five, even when the chances of their release seemed impossible.
A victory against global terrorism
We congratulate the other Governments, the Solidarity/Friendship Associations, the Nobel laureates, celebrities, artists, lawyers & law associations, media houses & journalists, and all the organisations and individuals who tirelessly campaigned for the release of the Five.
This victory is not just a victory of the Five, but it is a victory for world justice, and a victory against global Terrorism.
We welcome the resumption of the diplomatic ties between Cuba and the U.S, and we continue to demand for the ending of the U.S blockade on Cuba, which has on one hand led to financial, economic and commercial sabotage of Cuba, and on the other hand led to the isolation of the United States on the international scene, as seen in the annual vote at the United Nations General Assembly in support of Cuba, and the ending of the Blockade.
Long Live Cuba!
Long live Internationalism!
Long live Socialism!
