Nobel Prize asks Obama to end the blockade and release Ramón, Antonio and Gerardo

ARGENTINE, December 9, 2014. Nobel Prize, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, asked United States president Barack Obama to end the economic blockade against Cuba and to release the three antiterrorist Cubans still imprisoned in US jails.

In a letter sent from Buenos Aires, the human rights advocate urged Obama to "decide with open spirit" the freedom of the three Cubans part of the Cuban Five who still remain in United States.

Likewise, the letter demands "the end of the blockade the Cuban people has endured for more than 50 years" and recalls that the United Nations General Assembly "year after year, demands  the end of the blockade but your government does not pay attention to this".

"It is necessary for the life of the peoples to end with the injustices, to acknowledge that force is not reason, and to know that the greatest challenge of our time is to work together for a world with more justice and fraternal", wrote Perez Esquivel.
