MEMBERS OF 'TAMARINDO' FAST TO DEMAND JUSTICE FROM THE CUBAN GOVERNMENTAND SOLIDARITY FROM "AMERICA. " By Odalys Victores for Cuba Free Press.
Havana.- As is the case every 7th day of the month, members of the Organization for Human Rights Tamarindo 34 in conjunction with other dissident organizations fasted for 24 hours. They thus showed their support of the now historic hunger strike that has been going on for 40 days at some places in the country, demanding the release of all political prisoners and compliance with all human rights by the Cuban government.
At the moment, they say, many fellow Cubans find themselves detained arbitrarily. Some await trial for charges that would have never taken place almost anywhere else in the world. They say they are asking that all political detainees be released immediately as well as all prisoners who remain jailed for political reasons.
They also ask the American (U.S.) government to be reasonable and not become an accomplice to the misfortune of a Cuban child, who is now enjoying liberty and should not be returned to a place that is deprived of human liberties and rights - Cuba's reality today.
They ask Cuba Free Press to remind the U.S. government that the boastful exigencies of the Cuban government demanding that international laws be respected is nothing short of demagoguery.
They say it is a well-known fact that major human rights are violated in Cuba and that part of the United Nations in Geneva has condemned this and that Cuba fails to comply with various summit agreements and other documents signed by Fidel Castro on an international scale.
