Festive Left Friday Blogging: René González comes home, and so does Chavecito

René González, a Cuban anti-terror agent (and one of the famous Cuban Five, imprisoned in the US on espionage charges) gets a supervised leave of absence to visit his sick brother back home. As you can see in the video, it was a time for happy tears. It won’t be a permanent stay, unfortunately, since he’s still on parole in the US and is slated to return there, but you can bet that he’ll be making the most of his time at home.

Meanwhile, Chavecito is home from Cuba again after another round of cancer treatments, and he’s looking very well:

A warm welcome from rapper Rodbexa (at right) and a huge crowd of supporters. A much-needed lift for the spirits, too. Chavecito’s going to be doing a lot more travelling back and forth between Cuba and Venezuela in the not so distant future.
