cinco-antiterroristas.jpgThe International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five announced a program of solidarity to be held in the U.S. from the 4th to 11th of June.

According to the agenda, on June 7 there will be a peaceful demonstration outside the White House to demand President Barack Obama the immediate release of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez, still confined in federal prisons in the U.S.

René González, one of the five who fully served his prison term of 15 years in October 2011, had to spend a period of supervised release and after a process that led to the loss of his U.S. citizenship (he was born in Chicago on August 13, 1956 ) was able t return to his family in Cuba.

The group also noted that the main action of this year will include an International Commission of Inquiry on the Case of the Cuban Five, from March 7 and 8 in London, UK.

The Commission stated that it will “listen to about 20 key witnesses from Cuba and other countries, on the case of the Cuban Five, including René González”.

The Cuban Five, as they are internationally known, tried to prevent terrorist plots against Cuba that were organized and financed within the United States by violent groups based in South Florida.
