Speaking at the International Congress Pedagogy 2013, which brings together more than 3,000 participants from 40 countries, Alarcon said the U.S. administration paid millions for journalists to create a negative atmosphere surrounding the case and harass the jury. According to Alarcon, this way they influenced to guarantee harsh convictions for the Cuban Five, as Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and René González are known worlwide.
The Cuban Five were arrested in 1998 for monitoring Miami-based terrorist groups planning actions against Cuba and received their sentences after a seven-month trial without supply evidence of the allegations made. Alarcon called on delegates to the event, which will be held from February 4 to 8, to think what they can do from their daily work to contribute to the release of the Cuban Five.
