Dear Friends of Justice and Decency,
“To the People of the USA and President Barack Obama”
The letter has been written by Tomas Widén who together with Vania Ramirez are contact persons of the Swedish Free the Five Committee. Tomas is a veteran of the campaign to free the Cuban Five, that in Sweden officially started with a petition at the Swedish-Cuban Association’s Annual General Meeting the 16th of March 2002. In 2004 Tomas led a three week hunger strike demanding Free The Five, and since then the campaign here in Sweden never lost speed. Our open letter expresses our concerns. We are well aware that President Barack Obama with his signature can free Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández and Ramón Labañino. Together we must all increase international pressure and give support to the Free The Five movement in the USA.
The letter is enclosed here as PDF files in English, Spanish and Swedish together with a brief introductory accompanying letter.
Best regards from Sweden
Martin Österlin, President of the Swedish-Cuban Association
