A Message from René González - one of the 5 Cuban Heroes
June 10, 2008
After almost 10 years of unjust
imprisonment, justice seems more
removed. The ruling of the court of
appeals—so plagued with omissions
and falsifications that at times it
seems to be about another process—
demonstrates once more that one
cannot expect even the appearance of
this judicial system applying its own
We have always counted on you for
the morale that sustains us, on the
support of our people and the affection
of people like you, which has
been bestowed upon us for all these
years, attention that we have not
even been able to reciprocate with in
proper measure. These words do not
aspire to do so, they are only an attempt to tell you: Thank you very much.
It has been a privilege to count on you all this time, multiplied in thousands
of letters, books, cards, prayers, good wishes, subscriptions or personal photographs.
In these moments, in which we arise above the injustice and our commitment
is much stronger, I rightfully think of you at this time and thank you.
If in the past we did something to deserve this gift of solidarity and affection,
rest assured that we will never stop struggling, and hopefully continue to
merit that gift.
