33rd anniversary of the Cubana plane sabotage

ANTI-CUBA terrorism organized and financed in the United States on this date 33 years ago took its worst form when 73 people lost their lives in the sabotage of a Cuban airliner over Barbados.

Since then, every October 6th has been a motive for pain in this country, but also of constantly speaking out against the masterminds of that enormous crime, for them to pay for their deeds, because with the protection of the U.S. government, they are at liberty on the streets of that northern nation.

Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carrilles were the ones responsible for the terrible act, and true justice has yet to be done, given the double standards applied by successive U.S. administrations that claim to be anti-terrorist.

Those in the world who know about this case also express their indignation, and together with the Cuban people, they demand punishment for the terrorists, who have been participants in other blood-soaked crimes.

As an example of the outrageous U.S. attitude, those terrorists remain free while five Cubans have been imprisoned for more than 11 years for defending their country from such criminal acts.

Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González, Ramón Labañino and René González were protecting us from individuals like Posada, several middle-school students told the Prensa Latina news agency.

These young people, together with others of their generation from all over Cuba, will speak out today, Tuesday, at their schools to once again condemn that crime and once again demand justice.
