As part of the activities being organized in cities all over the world from September 12 to October 6, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5, along with solidarity friends is organizing this bicycle ride in San Francisco, California to bring attention to the 16 years of cruel imprisonment of the Five.
While Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez are back in Cuba after serving their entire sentences, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramón Labañino and Antonio Guerrero remain in U.S. Prisons. These three men are paying a high price for defending their country against terrorism. Instead of the continuation of their imprisonment they deserve to receive medals for their heroic actions. It is long overdue for President Obama to negotiate in good faith with Cuba to reach a humanitarian solution to this case and allow them to return to their loved ones.
