2010 12th Anniversary of the Imprisonment of the Cuban Five Free the Cuban Five Now!
This past September 12 marked the 12th annversary of the imprisonment of the Cuban Five, political prisoners unjustly held in U.S. prisons for reporting to U.S. authorities the activities of U.S.-based anti-Cuba terrorist organizations. This anniversary has seen an intensified international campaign demanding the U.S. permit visits by family members of the five and ultimately for the freedom of the five. The significance and importance of the worldwide campaign by people from all walks of life cannot be underestimated. Time and time again, this support from justice-loving people and friends and supporters of Cuba has made a difference in ensuring the well-being five Cuban patriots during their imprisonment. In this vein, the Canadian Network on Cuba at its 5th Biennial Convention in early September took a decision to step up its work to free the Cuban Five. Since then, the CNC is pleased to report that its member organizations have been extremely active in stepping up this work. To find out more about how to join in the work, check back on this page or contact the CNC or the local Cuba solidarity organization in your region.
The just struggle of Cuban people to live free from outside interference and the support of all those participating in the campaign to free the Cuban Five, present and future, will prevail and the Cuban Five will be free.
