MATANZAS, Cuba.- Mirta Rodriguez, mother of Antonio Guerrero, expressed in this city her appreciation for the expressions of love and solidarity with the cause of the five Cuban antiterrorists condemned in the United States, received from around the world.
Rodriguez participated on Wednesday in a tribute to these five heroes and explained that although Rene Gonzalez was released from prison after serving his sentence and is now under supervised release following a regulation of Miami judge, Olga Salanueva, his wife, has been repeatedly denied permission to visit him.
I’m anxious to know the new place where my son is, she expressed, and recalled that Tony was transferred in January to the prison in Marianna, Florida, in the southern part of the United States.
The book El dulce abismo: cartas de amor y esperanza de cinco familias cubanas, a selection of letters between Tony, Rene, Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino and relatives, with a prologue by Nancy Morejón, was presented at the Cuban Association of Artisans and Artists (ACAA), within the framework of the inaugural ceremony in this city of the 21st International Book Fair.
Luis Octavio Rodríguez, president of the ACAA in Matanzas, commented the text and highlighted the human sensitivity, values and hope shown in the letters, postcards and poems by The Five included in the volume, and called upon participants to multiply solidarity with the just cause of these heroes.
"El dulce abismo...,” named after a song by troubadour Silvio Rodriguez, was published for the first time in 2004 and reprinted in 2011 by the Jose Marti publishing house, with a presentation by renowned African-American writer Alice Walker, the winner of a Pulitzer Prize.
