The Cuban antiterrorists, internationally known as The Five, concluded today their visit to Venezuela, in the state of Falcon (west), where they visited places of historic interest and learned about the social programs developed by the Bolivarian Revolution.
Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez have been in Venezuela since last Monday to show their gratitude to this nation for the constant support to their cause.
They were arrested in 1998 in the United States and then sentenced to long terms in prison for preventing attacks against Cuba, planned in US territory.
Yesterday, The Five visited Sabaneta, in the state of Barinas, where they went to the house where late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was born.
According to the antiterrorists, setting foot on the land where Chavez was born was a debt, because the Bolivarian leader demanded their immediate release from prison at every international platform.
Besides the house, transformed into the Initial Educational Center, The Five planted a tree and called it “We Came Back.”
After the planting, Barinas’ Governor Adan Chavez said the gesture represented the victory of freedom.
Seeing them free was a dream of commander Chavez and today, it has come true, he said.
