The Cuban 5: Fernando González (free), Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández,
Ramón Labañino and René González (free). “Ours may be one of the most ridiculous
accusations of espionage in the history of this country” -Gerardo Hernández Nordelo of The Cuban 5
September 12th, 2014 will mark the 16th year anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban 5; one who is currently on parole in Cuba and four U.S. held Cuban political prisoners and incarcerated for protecting Cuba from U.S. sponsored terrorist actions.
In 2006, President Ricardo Alarcón, 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 work for their freedom! With the recent release of René González and Fernando González, we feel it is time to double our efforts to free Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández, and Ramón Labañino!
We ask that you support all these events and actions! Our COLLECTIVE action can free these innocent men! Together we will: FREE THE CUBAN 5!
