Cuban anti-terrorist fighter Antonio Guerrero, who is meeting an unfair prison sentence in a US jail since 1998, sent a message on the occasion of national commemorations in Cuba for the 1953 assaults on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Garrisons.
In his message Guerrero recalls that the revolutionaries led by Fidel pursued the goal of freeing the Cuban people from the bloodiest dictatorship ever in Cuban history, something they could only achieve through armed struggle.
Tony, as Guerrero is usually called by Cubans, said that with its triumph later in 1959, “the Revolution brought true independence to our people and realized the dreams of all those men and women who, throughout Cuba’s history, gave their very lives while fighting for independence.”
The anti-terrorist fighter along another four Cubans (Rene Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino and Ferando Gonzalez) were given extremely long sentences after they monitored Florida-based terrorist organizations. Rene Gonzalez is currently in Cuba after he met his prison sentence and was allowed to modify his parole in exchange for his renouncing to the US citizenship.
On behalf of his four compatriots, Tony reaffirmed that they will never let Fidel and Raul down, and that they will always defend the achievements of the Revolution.
