Ramón Labańino to the 9th Colloquium
sisters and brothers,
This 9th Colloquium for the freedom
of the Five really has been special given the even
larger attendance of brothers and sisters from all
over the world, for the enthusiasm and initiatives,
for the effort, but, above all, for the great love
with which you undertake all your work for the good
of Cuba and everyone.
Our brother René has also been
present at this colloquium: our vanguard, "our first
abanderado" (standard bearer), as Gerardo
would say. With René goes always the fraternal and
grateful embrace of the Five, our very presence. He
represents five men who have decided to dedicate our
lives to the good work of saving lives, of avoiding
wars. He also represents all of our people, the
constant struggle to create this better world for
everyone and for the good of everyone in peace.
We were born being five and we will
eternally be five!
There, with the presence of our
René, of our families, we wish to send you all our
gratitude and our optimism in the final victory and
the embrace of the Five which, one day, we will be
able to give you personally.
We have read and analyzed every
press article and commentary to have emerged from
this great event and it moved us to read the words
of a sister of our people when she received a visit
from our family members on a rainy day.
It is true. The rain of the homeland
calls us to its heart! It is the moment! For that,
we need a strong and infinite rain of solidarity, of
battle, to demand justice until we attain the final
victory and can meet and all of us enjoy a new
We are convinced we will win!
A strong and invincible embrace from
! Hasta la victoria siempre!
