Yesterday, while walking home from Retiro Park we stumbled on this protest on Calle Atocha. Both the regular and riot police cleared the road for the marchers.
Yesterday's march of solidarity with the Cuban Five was organized by the Comité Estatal por la Liberación de los 5 presos cubanos en EEUU
The Cuban Five are Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, and René González, five Cuban nationals who were arrested and convicted of espionage, conspiracy to commit murder, and other illegal activities, in the United States. All five are currently serving prison terms in the United States after being convicted in U.S. federal court in Miami, on June 8, 2001.
