Rene Gonzalez addressed the audience and made a reflection from his own view point, of the hatred that all along the Cuban history has aroused in the government of the United States the determination of the Cuban people. He also noted the role of the new generation who will be responsible to give continuity to the Revolution and should continue facing that hatred which they will keep on using to try to break our iron will.
Afterwards, they held Generation Chats on the cause of the Cuban Five, where actors like Hector Rodriguez Llompart, combatant of the clandestine struggle and Manuel David Orrio, former security agent addressed the audience and agreed with Rene on the subversive ways traditionally used by the enemies of the Revolution and their strategy to sow confusion on the revolutionaries, especially the young people.

Those who participated in this event coincide on the need to multiply the struggle for the liberation of the Cuban Five like it was done on the 15th anniversary of the imprisonment of the Cuban antiterrorist fighters, spreading creativity of the whole people to claim justice.
