As we reported last night, 79 year old anti-Castro Cuban exile Luis Posada Carilles – a former CIA operative linked to the bombing of a Cuban airliner – was released on bail yesterday and immediately returned to Miami to await trail on immigration fraud charges. Posada’s release infuriated the governments of Cuba and Venezuela, who have been trying to extradite him to stand trial over the 1976 airliner bombing, which killed 73 people, including several teenage members of Cuba’s national fencing team. Yesterday the National Committee to Free the Cuban 5 said they would hold demonstrations worldwide against Posada, beginning on May 11th Gloria La Riva is with the National Committee to Free the Cuban 5(roll tape#1 o.q.”in Venezuela”) That’s Gloria La Riva, an activist with the National Committee to Free the Cuban 5.
