HAVANA, Cuba.- Mirta Rodriguez, mother of Antonio Guerrero, one of the five Cuban anti-terrorists held in the U.S., was received in the southern autonomous Spanish region of Andalusia by the first vice-president of the local Parliament, Ignacio Gracia.
The Andalusian lawmaker listened with attention to Mirta Rodriguez during talks at the capital Seville, and he expressed his interest in learning about the situation of the Cuban Five, as Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez are internationally known.
Rodriguez is visiting Seville with a delegation made up of Cuban economist Alberto Betancourt, the president of the Hermanos Saiz Artists’ Association Luis Morlote and Foreign Ministry official Alberto Gonzalez.
Accompanied by the general consul in Seville, Ulises Arranz, the delegation met with members of the United Left party at the local government and parliament, and they insisted in the need to fight for the end of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade of Cuba.
