Pastors for Peace Members Meet Relatives of the Cuban 5 1

The Cuban News Agency (ACN) reports that members of the 23rd “US-Cuba Friendship Caravan” spoke to relatives of the Cuban 5 in Havana on Tuesday.  The five spies:  Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero (Tony) and Fernando Gonzalez, were arrested in 1998.  This group of intelligence officers and agents were ultimately convicted of numerous charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and espionage-associated crimes. 

According to ACN, the Pastors for Peace group was briefed on the Castro regime’s perspective of the spy case.  Elizabeth Palmeiro, Ramon’s wife, expressed her gratitude to the group for their support to “The Five.”  Palmeiro claimed the case is entirely political and demands international support if they are ever to be released from prison.  On a related note, the use of social networks and the internet was emphasized by Antonio Guerrero Cabrera, eldest son of convict Antonio Guerrero.

The 60-plus Pastors for Peace activists, coming from the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe, arrived in Havana on Saturday with approximately 100 tons of humanitarian aid.

Editor’s Note:  According to several former members of the Directorate of Intelligence, Cuba’s foreign intelligence service, Pastors for Peace has been a key religious target for decades.
