5 Days for the Five Most Successful Yet By Stephen Kimber
There was the opening two-day conference focusing on the future of US-Cuba relations and featuring participants from around the world… a kick-off press conference at the National Press Club that generated interviews with the Washington Post, NPR and CCTV, not to forget lots of coverage in international media… a concert headlined by the well-known political hip hop group Dead Prez… a Saturday morning bicycle tour of Washington monuments by more than 25 delegates from Vancouver and elsewhere — their bikes festooned with “Obama, Give Me Five!” posters — who arrived at the White House en masse just as the main demonstration began… that 500-strong demonstration and march from the White House to the Justice Department… two intense days of lobbying more than 60 members of Congress by representatives of community, legislative and human rights groups from 31 countries… and even two meetings with senior State Department officials who’d never deigned to respond to requests for meetings in the past!
Not a bad week’s work...

"Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree"
On the 15th anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban Five, the Hero of the Republic of Cuba Rene Gonzalez, has asked his people to saturate the island with yellow ribbons. "My desire is that on September 12 yellow ribbons will appear in trees, on balconies, on people's arms, on their pets or however they want to display it. That way this expression will make it impossible for visitors and the foreign media to ignore the fact that the Cuban people are still waiting for four of their sons who are imprisoned in the United States."
