An exhibition of paintings by Antonio Guerrero, one of the five Cubans imprisoned in the United States for their counterterrorism actions, opened in Shanghai, China’s second largest city, Solvisión reports.
At the inauguration of the display “Birds for Unity”, Cuban Ambassador to China, Alberto Blanco, highlighted the valuable lessons of life and strength contained in Guerrero´s works.
Blanco said that the exhibition evokes the integrationist process underway in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labanino, Fernando González and René Gonzáles, known internationally as the “Cuban Five” were jailed in September 1998 for reporting on violent schemes by far-right anti-Cuban groups based in Miami.
They were then convicted in 2001 by a Florida court on alleged espionage charges and given excessively long sentences in separate jails
