HAVANA, Cuba. Oct 31 (acn) The official Web site of the Church World Service (CWS, http://www.cwsglobal.org), a religious institution with humanitarian purposes based in New York, U.S.A., issued on Thursday a press release on the visit paid by CWS President and CEO Reverend John L. McCullough to the Hero of the Republic of Cuba Antonio Guerrero in the federal prison of Marianna, Florida, where he’s serving an unfair sentence for fighting terrorism.
According to the Web site, Rev. Dr. Carroll Baltimore, 19th president of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, and Rev. Dr. Russell L. Meyer, executive director of the Florida Council of Churches accompanied McCullough during the meeting.
The religious leader highlighted the energy and enthusiasm shown by Antonio, as well as his psychological, emotional and spiritual strength.
In the press release, McCullough champions the normalization of relations between Cuba and the United States, expressing that these are the initiatives men of faith should take, as a way to show politicians in his country the correct course to follow.
The President of the CWS also champions in his article the need to achieve the release on reciprocal humanitarian bases of U.S. subcontractor Alan Gross and of the three Cuban antiterrorists unfairly incarcerated in the United States, which he considered would also be “an important step towards the improvement of relations between the two countries.”
