Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González, and René González, the Cuban 5, were arrested by the F.B.I. on “conspiracy” and other trumped-up charges. The real reason for their imprisonment was that they infiltrated and gathered information on right-wing Cuban-American groups in Miami in order to prevent terrorist attacks against Cuba by these groups. The Cuban 5 have been imprisoned for more than 13 years – for defending the sovereignty of their homeland. Join the international campaign to free them. Demand that President Obama free them immediately. Yes We Can!
The Freedom Ride for the Cuban Five is part of the “Solidarity Week for the Cuban 5” campaign in Washington, D.C., April 17-21, 2012, initiated by
The International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5.
