The Militant OP/ED: Build Defense Campaign to Free the Cuban Five!

Cuba Confidential

The Militant, Vol. 77/No. 27, July 15, 2013, front page, editorial

Join us in mobilizing support in the U.S. and worldwide for the defense campaign to win freedom for all the Cuban Five — Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González.

The “crime” for which these five Cuban revolutionaries were framed up and imprisoned some 15 years ago by the U.S. government was volunteering to come to this country to monitor activity by counterrevolutionary Cuban-American groups. Operating on U.S. soil with virtual impunity, these outfits have a long record of violent assaults on Cuba and supporters of Cuba’s socialist revolution there, in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and elsewhere. During their trials and ever since, the Five have affirmed their determination and pride in doing their part to head off provocations that could have served as a pretext for military action by Washington against Cuba.
