• REVOLUTIONARY greetings to all
present at the José Martí Anti-imperialist Tribunal:
Fifteen years of colossal injustice
have not been enough to defeat our determination to
I can assure you, in my name and in
that of my compañeros, that there is nothing
which could achieve this objective.
The heroic example of a
revolutionary people, resisting the most powerful
empire in history for more than half a century, is
the principal source which feeds our spirit of
struggle, our decision to resist and our confidence
that we will return to our homeland.
During all of these years, we have
been conscious of the untiring struggle of Cubans
for justice to be done, so that we might return to
the heart of the people to which we belong.
You are gathered today at the
Tribunal of Dignity, where transcendental moments of
our nation’s recent history have transpired, to
15 years of imprisonment and to
demand an end to this injustice.
Your voices reach us today as they
have symbolically arrived all of these years; your
solidarity envelopes us in a human blanket and
encourages us in the struggle.
The righteous voice of a people,
along with those of hundreds of thousands of friends
around the world, cannot be silenced; your message
cannot be ignored.
Sooner or later, the bars which hold
us captive must give way, so that we may return to
our beloved homeland.
Fernando González Llort. •
