“Ours may be one of the most ridiculous accusations of espionage in the history of this country”- Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo, The Cuban 5
This September 12th, 2012 will mark the 14th year anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban 5; five US held Cuban political prisoners incarcerated for protecting Cuba from U.S. sponsored terrorist actions.
In 2006, President Ricardo Alarcon, of the Cuban Parliament, declared Sept. 12th through October 6th to be a period of time to raise awareness on the case of the Cuban 5. The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 is committed to building an international movement for the Cuban 5’s freedom by extending this period of time to be a full month (Sept. 12th-October 12th) and calling it “Free the Cuban 5 Month.” During this month we organize a calendar of events to raise awareness about the Cuban 5 and how people can support their release!
Please support the Free the Cuban 5 picket on Sept 12th, the Vicente Feliu concert on Saturday Sept. 15th at 1199, the special Film screening of “South of the Border” on Sept. 22nd and support the Cuban 5 call in day on Oct. 12th!
