• THIS is Gerardo, from Victorville,
Adelanto, in the California desert.
A greeting to everyone present and
to our people in general, and thank you from the
Five to those who have been participating and
organizing this and other activities for the 15th
anniversary of our arrest.
Many thanks, as well, to those who
have contributed their art to this gesture of
solidarity. We need it and it cheers us to know that
we can count on you.
It is easy to say 15 years. I am
sure that, in addition to Yvette, there are other
15-year-olds among those present, who were born the
year the Five were robbed of our freedom.
Much rain has fallen since then, but
you can be sure that the years have not diminished
in the slightest our confidence that one day the
Five will be there with you, with our people, there
in this very tribunal.
Once again, thank you all, you can
always count on our loyalty.
A strong embrace and let the music
continue, because this battle must be undertaken
with lots of enthusiasm.
ˇPa’lante siempre! •
