Christchurch, October 31st, 2017. – The watercolours exhibition “I will die the way I´ve lived” by Antonio Guerrero, one of The Cuban Five, was launched this Monday at the largest city of The South Island. Antonio was among a group of Cuban freedom fighters unjustly incarcerated in the US for more than a decade, as a result of a rigged and politically motivated trial.
The Ambassador of Cuba, Mario Alzugaray, acknowledged the support of the local Cuba Friendship Society to ensure this event, scheduled on a close date to the voting of the resolution condemning the US blockade at the United Nations General Assembly, in order to draw on the continuity and impact of this unfair and cruel policy that has been implemented for more than half a century.
The Cuban diplomat also offered information on Cuba – US relations at present times, emphasizing the interest of the current Administration to freeze recent positive developments, against the will of the U.S. citizens and the Cuban American community, which majority is advocating for the end of the blockade and the improvement of ties between the two nations.
The exhibition will be open to the public until November 3rd at the Linwood Community Art Center. (Embacuba NZ)
