“The rain of the homeland calls us to its heart! It is the moment! For that, we need a strong and infinite rain of solidarity, of battle, to demand justice until we attain the final victory and can meet and all of us enjoy a new sunset.”

These are the powerful words of Ramón Labañino, one of the Cuban 5 Heroes held in U.S jails. They were part of a message read by Ramon's daughter, Laura, at the 9th International Colloquium for the Freedom of the Cuban Five, held in Holguin, Cuba from November 13th to 17th. More than 300 delegates from 51 countries were present at the Colloquium, among them three organizers from the Free the Cuban 5 Committee – Vancouver. Participants vowed to strengthen their unity and increase their efforts until all 5 Cuban Heroes are released from prison and back in Cuba with their loved ones.

The 97th Picket Action for the freedom of the Cuban 5 Heroes marks 8 years since the first picket organized by the Free the Cuban 5 Committee – Vancouver, in December of 2005. As we raise our signs and our voices in front of the U.S. Consulate this month in Vancouver, we bring with us the voices of participants at the Colloquium, as well as the never-faltering commitment of the Cuban 5 Heroes and their families to this international struggle for dignity and justice.

Later that evening, at the Cultural Event and Report Back, people in Vancouver will also have the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of the achievements of this 9th International Colloquium for the Freedom of the Cuban Five, and the planning and strategy for future actions for the Cuban 5 Heroes in Canada and internationally.

Join with us as we demand:
FREE ALL THE 5 CUBAN HEROES NOW!
RELEASE ANTONIO, FERNANDO, RAMÓN & GERARDO FROM U.S. PRISONS NOW!
GRANT A VISA TO ADRIANA PEREZ NOW!
