Portuguese Unions Urge Obama to Release Cuban Anti-terrorist Fighters
Portugal General Workers’ Confederation, the largest unión organization in the country, urged US president Barack Obama to release the three antiterrorist Cubans who are still serving prison sentences in the United States.

In a letter sent to the US embassy in Portugal, the confederation asked Obama to resort to his presidential powers established on article 2 of the US Constitution to free Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino and Antonio Guerrero, who along Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez were arrested and given unfair prison sentences although no evidence was presented against accusations that they were conspiring to commit espionage against the United States.

The five Cubans actually were monitoring Florida-based ultra-right organizations that have planned terrorist actions against Cuba.

Fernando and Rene Gonzalez are already in Cuba after they served their full sentences, but another three are still in jail, the letter points out.
