Paintings by Cuban Antiterrorist Fighter on Display in US Cities

HAVANA, CUBA.- A exhibition of paintings by Antonio Guerrero, one of five Cuban antiterrorist fighters who remain unjustly imprisoned in the United States since 1998 – internationally known as the Cuban Five-, will be on display in several cities of the United States.


The website reports that the exhibition, entitled “From My Altitude” and consisting of 28 paintings, will be inaugurated on Tuesday in the main hall of the Ekstrom library at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.


During the opening event, poems by the Five and other Cuban poets will be read.


Walter Tilow, with the Committee in Solidarity with the Five, said that this will be an opportunity for many people to learn about the injustices committed by the US legal system in the case of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez, who were arrested and condemned to harsh sentences for monitoring anti-Cuba extremist groups that were planning and carrying out terrorist actions against the Caribbean nation.


The exhibition will remain there until February 19 when it will be taken to Oregon, where it will remain on display for a month at the Fenorio gallery in Eugene.


The program for that occasion includes lectures by Leonard Weinglass, one of the attorneys with the Five’s defense team, and by other personalities.


The exhibition will also be available later in the year in other US cities, including the county of Taos, home of the only exiting community of indigenous American people.
