Free the ” Cuban Five”

THE CUBAN 5

It is the US’ repeated refusal to prosecute Miami-based terrorist groups that led Cuba to send five Cubans to Miami to infiltrate these groups and report back to Cuba about any imminent attacks.

The Cuban Five were arrested in 1998 and falsely accused by the US of committing espionage conspiracy against the US, and other related charges. This coming September 12 will mark the 9th anniversary of their arrest.

The Five’s actions were never directed at the U.S. government. No one was harmed and the Five never possessed nor used any weapons while in the United States. Yet, in a huge miscarriage of justice, the Cuban Five received four life sentences and 75 years, collectively.

The injustice of the sentences handed “the Five” is even more glaring when you look at the breadth and nature of Mr. Ferro’s activities. With a previous felony conviction in 1992 for explosives possession (see article below) combined with the massive weapons cache discovered in 2006, someone should have been keeping an eye on him – in a more perfect world that would have been the FBI.

September 12 marks the kick-off of a month-long international campaign to “Free the Five.” Please go to www.freethefive.org for more information.
