Cuba, June, 6 – In a which brought together more than twenty artists to make a for the Five in the Ruben Martinez Villena hall of the National Association of Cuban Writers and Artist (), Rene Gonzalez expressed: “We were protecting your happiness and we were glad to do so.All we do for our brothers will be useful, above all if it is aimed at the US society. We have a lot of support around the world, but we need to break the silence about the case in the United States.“
In a space kept for Rene on the cloth he wrote: “I am still imprisoned as long as the five of us are not together in Cuba.“

The painting is 1.40 meters long and ten meters wide and is the introduction to a further exhibition for the Five intended to be displayed in Washington.
