New Yorkers Support Cuban 5

New Yorkers Support Cuban 5Havana, Aug 13 .- An exhibition of artwork by Antonio Guerrero, one of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly imprisoned in the United States, will open September 3 in New York, sponsored by supporters fighting for their freedom.

This is an opportune occasion to show that communities in the United States are telling the truth about the unjustness of this case, said Benjamin Lamas, a member of the Free the Five solidarity committee, told Prensa Latina.

"We are also dedicating a month in support of the Cuban Five, from September 12 to October 12, in response to the call made by Cuban Parliament President Ricardo Alarcon to raise people's awareness about this issue," Lamas said.

Lamas, the son of Puerto Rican parents, considers Cuba to be his second homeland, and that is why he joined the campaign for the Cuban Five's freedom, he said.

Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez and Gerardo Hernandez have been serving harsh sentences for the last 12 years, for monitoring right-wing extremist groups based in the United States to prevent them from carrying out terrorist actions against Cuba. (Prensa Latina)
