In May, 2002, the "Light in the dark" radio program was created to be broadcast on the Radio Rebelde national station on Sunday night from 10:30 pm to 12: 00 pm. Through a message of love and solidarity, the program has the honorable task to make the truth known about the Cuban Five antiterrorists unjustly prisoners in the United States. For having fulfilled honorably a professional and ethical duty, constituting an example of current journalism in the country, "Light in the dark" has received Dignity Award by the of Journalists of Cuba (UPEC), which recently held the Press Day in Cuba.
The Distinction was given at the Jose Marti Anti-Imperialist Tribune, an ideal place that involves patriotism, nobility, vocation for justice and the optimism in the triumph which daily lifts the Five Heroes, and which the producers of the radio program represented by Arleen Rodriguez, Angelica Paredes and Demetrius Villaurrutia broadcast with deep and fresh pride.
Speaking on behalf of her team, Arleen, one of the announcers on this radio program, especially devoted this Award to the mothers and wives of "the Five", while she increased the commitment to continue broadcasting a program full of poetry, music, and arguments which they contribute. "The producers of this program thank Radio Rebelde and Radio Havana Cuba stations for the opportunity to reach "the Five", their nostalgia, and even their hearts," she said emotionally.
In his words of acknowledgment, Tubal Paez, UPEC president, expressed the desire of all journalists of Cuba to praise, through this award, the staff of " Light in the dark ", who have nobly and passionately dedicated themselves to present the case of the Five, a mission that each week shows an extraordinary sensitivity and wide professional skill. "
The Dignity Award, one of the highest awards, has been given by the UPEC to outstanding journalism professionals in Cuba including the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, who received it in 2007.
The ceremony became a confirmation of the battle for the return of Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez and Ramon Labañino and Gerardo Hernandez to their land, without further delay. It is the urgency of the claim. No more injustice!
