Mr. President

For how long, Mr. President, are you going to keep the three Cuban patriots, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino et Gerardo Hernández, locked up in prison?
For how long, Mr. President, are these three men who, without weapons, risking their lives, worked to thwart terrorist attacks committed against their country, with the guilty complaisance of the United States government, going to be imprisoned?
For how long, Mr. President, will Nobel Peace Prize holders, members of Parliament, jurists, intellectuals, artists, political leaders, union officials, clergymen and simple citizens, all over the world, have to solicit you for you to finally finish by liberating these three Cubans?
For how long, Mr. President, will we have to demonstrate to you, by “a+b”, the innocence of these three men, when you know fully well that they are not at all guilty?
For how long, Mr. President, are you going to keep Gerardo Hernández’s wife Adriana, who he hasn’t seen since he was arrested sixteen years ago, from being able to visit him?
For how long, Mr. President, is your country going to continue, in total impunity, playing worldwide policemen, scoffing at the Cuban people’s sovereignty?
This sinister farce, in which the victims are the five Cubans René González, Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino and Antonio Guerrero, is continuing today, with the last three. It has been going on for too long.
You cannot keep Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Gerardo Hernández locked up in prison any longer. The Cuban government has thrown you a line with the opportunity of a humanitarian exchange – wise up and catch it while it’s still time!
Please receive, Mr. President, the expression of my most sincere humanitarian sentiments.
