We have just heard the tragic news of the death in a traffic accident, of Celia Hart Santamaría, 45, and Abel Santamaría Hart, 48, the daughter and son of Armando Hart Davalos and Haydee Santamaría. Celia came from a family of veteran Cuban revolutionaries who fought against the Batista dictatorship together with Fidel Castro. She has been an outspoken defender of the political and revolutionary heritage of Leon Trotsky.

The International Marxist Tendency considers that the Cuban Five are in the front ranks of the fight for world socialism. They were fighting against the reactionary attacks of the extreme right against the Cuban Revolution. The struggle to bring about their release is the duty not only of the Cuban people, but of all those who believe in the socialist future of humanity.
