In the letter, Rene highlights the demand made by Santiago Vega, Aldo Bonavitta and Alcides Bonavitta for the release of the Cuban Five – as Rene, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Ramon Labañino are internationally known –
saying that this gesture honours him and his four comrades, the Cubadebate website reports.
The mountaineers are carrying with them a flag with the logo of the Five – created by Gerardo -, which they will leave in the top of the Aconcagua – 6,959 meters over the sea level and regarded as the ‘Roof of the Americas’.
The Cuban Five were arrested and given harsh sentences for monitoring anti-Cuba extremist groups in South Florida that were planning and carrying out terrorist attacks against the Caribbean nation.
