The Cuban Five are five Cuban
men who are in U.S. prisons, serving four life sentences and 75 years
collectively, after being arrested in September 1998 and wrongly convicted in
U.S. federal court in Miami in 2001. They are Gerardo Hernández, Ramón
Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González. They were
falsely accused by the U.S. government of committing espionage conspiracy
against the United States, and related charges. But the Five pointed out
vigorously in their defense that they were fighting terrorism — they were
monitoring the actions of CIA-backed Miami-based terrorist groups, in order to
prevent attacks on Cuba. The Five's actions were never directed at the
U.S.government. They never harmed anyone nor ever possessed nor used any
weapons while in the United States.
On 9 separate occasions, the U.S. government has denied entry visas to Adriana Perez and Olga Salanueva to visit their imprisoned husbands. It has been almost 10 years since they last embraced. Their visitation rights must be respected! For more information, visit www.thecuban5.org
