Caricatures by One of Cuban Five to Be Exhibited in Canada

Ottawa, Jan 15 (Prensa Latina) The exhibit of caricatures Humor from my Pen, by Gerardo Hernández, one of the five anti-terrorist Cuban fighters unfairly held in US prisons since 1998, will be opened for the first time as of Jan.24 in Québec.

They are images that speak for themselves, according to a communiqué received today in Prensa Latina.

The exhibit, also to be taken to schools and universities, is part of actions in Canada for the release of Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez, internationally known as The Cuban Five.

Organizers of the initiative include the Confederation of Canadian Unions, the Quebec-Cuba Solidarity Coordination table and the Fabio Di Celmo Solidarity Committee, aimed at raising awareness about the case of these men, who were detained in Miami for monitoring violent anti-Cuban groups.

After a biased trial plagued with irregularities, the Cuban Five were given harsh sentences ranging from 15 years to two life plus 15 years.

René González, who served his sentence, was punished with an additional three years of supervised release in US territory.
