Cuba Must Keep Alert, Warns Cuban Antiterrorist

Mexico, Sep 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuba must keep alert regarding the groups that from the United States have practiced terrorism against the island, asserted here today the Cuban antiterrorist, Rene Gonzalez.

In a visit to Mexico, Gonzalez is one of The Five, as Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando González are internationally known, who served long jail sentences in the United States for monitoring in that country

the activities of violent counterrevolutionary organizations.

I knew many terrorists that later in the trial in Miami against The Five declared themselves as followers of Martin Luther King, said Gonzalez

to Prensa Latina on the judicial process considered a farce of U.S. authorities to accuse them.

He revealed he is preparing a diary on that concocted judicial process to denounce the violations that were committed against him and his compatriots and that showed the impunity of notorious terrorists.

During the trial the weapons used against Cuba were presented, even one designed specially to shoot Cuban authorities. At court, terrorists alleged they were to hunt sharks, he recalled.

They have never renounced terrorism, he alerted and underlined that the safeguard of Cuban Revolution against that scourge is the unity of the people and the resistance maintained against aggressions and the U.S. blockade.

He pointed that in the present circumstances of normalization of relations between Washington and Havana ”it is probable those groups fade, become entrenched, but keep being there, ready to attack the island.”

The only thing that can prevent it is the message of Cuban society that convinces them it is useless, he emphasized.

In the name of The Five, Gonzalez thanked here the expressions of the Mexican people supporting from the start the cause for the liberation of the Cuban anti-terrorists imprisoned in the United States. He recalled the Mexican Senate was among the first to speak out as also many personalities, social organizations and trade unions.

”That is why we have come to thank so great solidarity”, concluded.
