Two of them, Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez are back in Cuba after completing their sentences but Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino and Gerardo Hernandez are still serving long sentences in US prisons. Their crime? Protecting their country Cuba against terrorism. They have been in prison too long and it is time for them to be reunited with their loved ones.In Washington D.C.
