This Jan. 10 in El Paso, Texas, a U.S. government farce will take place with the opening of the trial of terrorist Luis Posada Carriles. The ANSWER Coalition, the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five and others will be there to demand justice for Posada’s victims.
Evidence and testimony will be presented by expert witnesses, who will expose to the public and media the real crimes of Posada: among them, his role in directing the Cubana plane bombing and the 1997 Havana hotel bombings. Community members will serve as jury.
Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition, explains that U.S. naval exercises near the Korean peninsula in the Yellow Sea are meant to provoke and escalate tension in the region, creating the possibility of a catastrophic war.
Demonstrations took place across the country to denounce the escalating threats against North Korea. Participants demanded that the U.S. government end its aggressive posture to avoid a new war in the region.
