WHAT: Rene Gonzalez, one of the Cuban 5 was released in October 2011 but had to remain in the U.S. for three more years under supervised probation. Just recently, in a two-week authorized visit, due to the death of his father, Gonzalez was allowed to stay in Cuba after renouncing his U.S. citizenship. Incarcerated since 1998, the internationally known Cuban 5 came to this country in the 1990's to monitor the activities of right-wing anti-Cuba groups responsible for carrying out terrorist acts against Cuba that have resulted in the deaths of close to 3500 people since 1959. The other 4 remain in U.S. prison.

Starting May 30th through June 5th, representatives from 22 countries will participate in a series of activities calling for changing U.S. policies towards Cuba and for the freedom of the Cuban 5.
