Cuban activist Magali Llort, a reference in the struggle on the island for the return of the five heroes who were imprisoned in the United States due to their anti-terrorist activities, died Thursday, reports Prensa Latina.
The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) paid tribute to the mother of one of these young Cubans, who spent more than 15 years in prison for alerting her country about Washington’s violent plans.
Through its website Siempre con Cuba (Always with Cuba), the institution also recalled Llort’s trajectory as a revolutionary and congresswoman who deserved different recognitions.
“Magali, a loving mother, did not like the media to talk about her, preferring instead to denounce the injustice committed against the Five, of whom she said that they were all her children,” the website says.
Recently, the president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, recalled the 23rd anniversary of the imprisonment of the five anti-terrorists in the United States and pointed out that the struggle for their liberation revealed to the world the aggressions against the Antillean country.
