RENE GONZALEZ GRANTED REQUEST TO GO TO CUBA TO SEE HIS BROTHER ROBERTO

March 19, 2012 – Today Federal District Judge Joan Lenard granted the motion for Rene to travel home to see his brother Roberto who is nearing the end of his courageous struggle with terminal cancer. The court order allows Rene to travel to Cuba for a duration of no longer than 2 weeks with strict guidelines. The Justice Department had argued against Rene’s request but a strong international campaign of letters and emails to Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama made it impossible for them to ignore this simple humanitarian request.
We extend our warmest thoughts and solidarity to Rene and Roberto and their entire family during this time.
