After 55 years of their execution, said Rodriguez, the genocide and repressive essence of the US government continues to increase at an alarming rate.
Ethel and Julius were arrested in the US accused of espionage and were tried and sentenced as communist spies at the service of the former Soviet Union.
False testimonies were fabricated and other contradictory information was presented whose true objective, said Ethel Rosenberg herself, was to turn them into "political victims of the Cold War".
"The same hate at the time that took the Rosenberg's to the electric chair, today is carried out against the five Cuban political prisoners incarcerated in the US for fighting terrorism and in defense of their homeland", said Rodriguez.
Ramon Labanino, Rene Gonzalez, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Gerardo Hernandez are carrying out long unjust prison terms in the US for having infiltrated terrorist organizations based in Florida with the objective of stopping terrorist actions against the Cuban people.
