(www.miscelaneasdecuba.net).- July 22nd, 2009.- WASHINGTON. Students
from The George Washington University Students for a Free Cuba
organization will be giving away balloons urging the release of Cuban
political prisoner Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet.

Dr. Biscet, who is currently serving his tenth year of a 25 year prison
sentence for his human rights work on the island, has been adopted as a
prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International. He has also received
the United States Medal of Freedom.

This Saturday, July 25th on the eve of the anniversary of Fidel Castro's
attack on an army barrack which began the revolution, the students will
gather at M Street and Wisconsin Ave. in the historic Georgetown
neighborhood in Washington, DC. The activity will take place between
10:00am and 3:00pm and everyone is welcome.

A card petitioning General Raul Castro to set the black physician free
and allow him to rejoin his family in the United States will be made
available. The students will also distribute a flyer urging men and
women of good will to call on President Barack Obama to include the
release of Dr. Biscet and all Cuban political prisoners in any
conversation with the Cuban government.

GW Students for a Free Cuba also calls on the American people to urge
General Raul Castro to allow the International Committee of the Red
Cross to visit his political captive.

GW Students for a Free Cuba was founded in 2009 and has hosted several
speakers and panel discussions on human rights in Cuba, including Fidel
Castro's severing of diplomatic relations with Israel.
