      >Plans for a series of peaceful, nationwide demonstrations against the
      >siege on Elián and supporting his freedom are now underway.
      >
      >The demonstrations are planned for the eve of the case for Elián’s asylum
      >before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia. This day
      >also happens to be Mother’s Day in Latin America, when the demonstrations
      >may be an appropriate symbolic reminder that Elián’s mother, who died
      >trying to reach America, wanted Elián to be free.
      >
      >The protests will take place at 10 A.M., your time, WEDNESDAY, 10 MAY 2000
      >(the day before the hearing for Elián’s asylum in Atlanta) at THE FEDERAL
      >BUILDING in each American city listed below.
      >
      >At each protest we will fly American flags, sing the American National
      >Anthem and other great songs for liberty, and have a noted speaker give a
      >talk on why Elián should remain free in America.
      >
      >This is a grass-roots field operation; we will need money, gifts, office
      >supplies, American flags, city maps, assistance with permits, police
      >cooperation, field coordination, use of cell phones, use of pagers, media
      >coordination, e-mail correspondents, water, food, first aid,
      >walkie-talkies or radios, security, phone callers, letter writers, people
      >to promote the event on the internet, and in the real world, and much,
      >much more.
      >
      >Mark Da Cunha creator of the Keep Elián Free website is the national

      >Contrary to what you will hear in the pro-Castro members of the press the
      >cause for Elián’s inalienable right to be free is growing. My Keep Elián

      >persecuted, minority that exists--the individual.
      >
      >It is in the name of this struggle that I am calling for an outcry for
      >Elián’s liberty. Even if young Elián is returned to the island prison of
      >Cuba, let him see that Americans stood against evil in this unholy war
      >against the Elián’s individual rights.
      >
      >It is the not only the MORAL thing to do--it is the AMERICAN thing to do.
