  • The moment ‘unarmed civilian was shot dead by an Israeli sniper’ as he desperately searched for his family (+ Video) | Cubadebate (English)
    ISM team came across a young Palestinian man who told them he was looking for his family and that they followed him in an attempt to help him find his relatives As the group tried to make their way across a heavily damaged area shots suddenly rang out The first sent the group scrambling for cover but did not hit anyone but the second hits the man in the green t shirt Israeli soldier sniper hit him in his hip so he laid down And I started to ask him can you move Because if he can move maybe he can roll around and go to the other place but he said no I cannot move like my blood is going everywhere Abdellah explained that he and the other ISM volunteers were unable to approach the young man amid fears they would be targeted too Then the Palestinian was hit a second time as he lay on the ground And that bullet I guess it was in his heart or like or almost there because he was like going and dying in front of our eyes the activist said Deja un comentario Tu dirección de correo electrónico no será publicada Los campos necesarios están marcados Nombre Correo electrónico Título Comentario Youtube Facebook Twitter Picasa RSS Most Commented Cubadebate opens its new Web page in English 20 President Hugo Chavez s address to the People of Venezuela 10 Mandela is dead Why hide the truth about Apartheid 8 Free the Five is heard at Left Forum 6 The Unsustainable Position of the Empire 5 U S government promoting Internet aggression against Cuba 5 The Fiftieth Anniversary Parade 4 Nato s Fascist War 4 The Wonderful World of Capitalism 4 El Paso Diary The Battle Over the Solo Fax 4 NATO s

  • The Innocence of Gerardo | Cubadebate (English)
    promote the Helms Burton law accompanied by bellicose threats Can anyone believe that they would not act against Gerardo if he had been involved They did nothing precisely because his innocence was clear to them It is also the reason they did not charge him when he was arrested together with his comrades in September 1998 In the initial indictment not one word is said about the event of February 24 1996 nor is anything said about the plane shoot down or related issues They did not do that because the FBI which possessed and had read the messages between Gerardo and Havana knew he was innocent Count 3 conspiracy to commit murder was drawn up only against Gerardo It was more than seven months after the arrest of the Cuban Five when they were in solitary confinement the infamous Hole isolated from the world and where it was impossible to defend themselves To that end the Prosecution presented a Second Superseding Indictment that as the Miami press described it was created in meetings openly carried out by the FBI the Prosecution and the leaders of the terrorist groups It was an arbitrary accusation fabricated top to bottom with the sole objective of satisfying the criminals inflaming the hatred against Gerardo and his comrades and guaranteeing beforehand the worst most illegal and irrational convictions Count 3 was the focus of the lawless and vulgar media campaign promoted and financed by the Federal Government Like a tsunami of lies it slammed a defenseless community paralyzed by terror It was five articles per day in the print newspapers endless commentaries day and night on radio and local television creating what the panel of judges in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2005 characterized as a perfect storm of hatred prejudice and hostility A major part of the trial centered on Count 3 Inside and outside the courtroom individuals linked to Brothers to the Rescue agitated and made strident statements that the local media amplified They and the U S paid journalists persecuted and besieged the members of the jury who complained to the judge She for her part several times also complained to the Government of course to no avail In the courtroom despite all this the baseless lie of the Prosecution was defeated The accusers who were so effectively promoting hatred and prejudice against him were unable to present one single proof to connect Gerardo to the events of February 24 Not a thing So overwhelming and obvious was its defeat that the Government did something highly unusual At the end of the discussions when the judge was about to issue her instructions to guide the jury in its verdict deliberations the prosecutors objected surprisingly to the text that the Judge had prepared which reflected the Indictment word for word They proposed changing it radically The Judge for good reason did not accept the request asserting that they had spent seven months discussing the prosecution s indictment and it was
