Santiago de Cuba, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) With the name “Libertad que Viene” (Coming Freedom) a new cultural space was created in this Cuban eastern city, demanding the return of the Cuban Five.

  Pedro Miranda, president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples of the World (ICAP) told Prensa Latina the cultural space is celebrated once a month, gathering local artists and foreign students in universities.

Miranda added that 300 solidarity committees are now functioning in Santiago de Cuba, specially in schools and universities where several children, adolescents and young people exchange correspondence with the four Cuban anti-terrorist fighters still in prison.

Particular emotiveness was given by the identification with Irma and Ivette Gonzalez Salanueva, daughters of Rene Gonzalez, who should get together with his family in Cuba after his release, but is instead condemned to stay in Florida for a supervised freedom of three years, in the middle of dangers for his own life.

ICAP said the territory has been visited by 563 members of 19 groups, among them the Puerto Rican Juan Rius Rivera Brigade in its 20th anniversary.

Foreign diplomats and independent friends have also been received in this place as part of a program for historical, cultural and social exchange.
