HAVANA TIMES —  A walk/run called Five Kilometers for the Cuban Five took place Saturday in different provinces of Cuba. The objective was to demand the release of the remaining four Cuban agents imprisoned in the US since 1998.

The Cuban government considers the men heroes and maintains that their undercover work in the US was designed only to prevent terrorist groups from organizing violent attacks against Cuba and its interests from Florida.

One of the Five, Rene Gonzalez, served out his 15 year term and is back living in Cuba, supporting actions of the population demanding the freedom of the rest of his comrades.

Rene and family members of the Cuban Five, top athletes and the general population took part during the walk/run on Saturday.

  • Disgusting waste of resources.
    They have created a celebrity…
