Help raise $250,000 for the

Cuban Five Freedom Fund
The Cuban Five — Gerardo, Ramón, Antonio, Fernando, and René — have endured more than seven years in prison for opposing terrorism that has killed 3,478 Cubans. The Five were unjustly prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to four life terms and 75 years, by a Miami prosecutor, court and jury that could not guarantee them a fair, unbiased trial, due to virulent anti-Cuba prejudice in Miami. On August 9, an historic court decision by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals of Atlanta overturned all their convictions and granted the Five a new trial. However, on October 31, in response to the U.S. attorney’s appeal, the 11th Circuit vacated the Aug. 9 Cuban 5 victory. Now the appeals process must begin again before a full-panel hearing. This is a crucial time for people who believe in justice to help raise awareness of the Cuban Five’s case, and win their freedom.
