Message of support from Friends of Cuba Society (FOCUS-SA) on the release of Fernando Gonzalez Llort from USA Prison.
Tuesday, March 04, 2014

We welcome the release of Fernando González Llort on the 27 February 2014, one of the Five Cuban heroes unjustly condemned to long prison terms in the United States for defending their homeland. Fernando was released from the Safford Federal Correctional Institute in Arizona, having completed his full sentence. Comrade Fernando was a part of the Cuban contingent in Angola that contributed towards the Freedom of South Africa. From 1987 to 1989 he participated as an internationalist combatant in the war of liberation in Angola and against apartheid. On September 12, 1998 Fernando was arrested. He was held in preventative custody for thirty-three months before the sentence was passed and was isolated in special cell, known as “the hole”, designed for prisoners with serious disciplinary problems for almost 17 months prior to the trial and for 48 days after the verdict was passed. In February 2003 he was once again held in solitary confinement for almost a month without any reason being given.

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

 SOUTH AFRICA, February 26, 2014.- Authorities of the University of South Africa (UNISA) welcomed the premier of the documentary "Mandela y Fidel” (Mandela and Fidel) by Estela Bravo. Attended by a huge crowd and members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited in Pretoria, the exhibition of the most recent work by award winning Estela Bravo was interrupted many times by the audience's applauses Ahmed Kathrada, member of the Parliament and fighter against Apartheid who was incarcerated together with Mandela in Robben Island, attended the event as well as authorities from Nelson Mandela Foundation and UNISA. "This documentary is wonderful as it summarizes the moments lived by these two important political leaders, the love for their peoples and the way their people also love them", stated Kathrada. The film recalls Mandela's visit to Havana and his appreciation to the Cuban people and Fidel for their participation in the defeat of South African apartheid during the war in Angola, a key moment within the fight against the racist regime. Sello Hatang, director of Nelson Mandela foundation, highlighted that Mandela and his party, African National Congress, had always considered they were in debt with Cuba for this reason. A dialogue presided over by Estela Bravo, Barbara Masekela, who worked with Mandela, and Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, Cuban ambassador to Pretoria, offered the attendees the opportunity to exchange on the legacy of Mandela, the current challenges of the South African society and to convey their profound admiration for Cuba and its Revolution.
