Gerardo Hernández

Every year, the people celebrate the birthday of Gerardo Hernandez, one of the five anti-terrorist Cuban fighters unjustly held in U.S. prisons. “Cuba defends its sovereignty with honorable men like anti-terrorist fighter Gerardo Hernandez, who on his 46th birthday today is being unfairly held in a U.S. prison for warning Cuba of subversive plans hatched in south Florida,” Juan Miguel Diaz, chief of orthopedic services at Calixto Garcia Hospital, told Prensa Latina. “Gerardo has been in jail since 1998, far from his relatives and his homeland, but his incarceration will not break this upright fighter,” said Diaz, who has served on several internationalist brigades in African countries.
