International Days of Action Marking 15 Years of Unjust Imprisonment!

STRUGGLE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS!
STRUGGLE FOR JUSTICE!
FREE ALL THE CUBAN 5 HEROES NOW!

September 12th, 2013 will mark 15 years that the Cuban 5 have been cruelly and unjustly held in U.S. prisons. The Cuban 5 heroes are five Cuban intelligence officers that the Cuban government sent to Miami to infiltrate US-backed right-wing terrorist organizations and prevent terrorist activities against their homeland. In 1998 the U.S. government arrested the Cuban 5 and they have faced outrageous prison sentences from 15 years to double-life plus 15 years, 17 months of solitary confinement, and the denial of family visits. Despite this, the Cuban 5 heroes have never for one moment given up their struggle for dignity and freedom and have always declared their innocence.

In June of 2013, René González, one of the Cuban 5 returned to Cuba. It is with this great victory, and the commitment of people all over the world to fight until the 4 remaining Cuban heroes are free from U.S. jails, that we mark the 15 years since their arrest and imprisonment.

In British Columbia, Canada the Free the Cuban 5 Committee-Vancouver, together and in unity with other Cuba solidarity activists, groups, and supporters of the Cuban 5 heroes in Nanaimo, Kamloops, Bowen Island, and greater Vancouver, invite you to join with us for 6 events in 4 cities for our 5 heroes from September 12 -15. On these days, our united voices will be echoed in British Columbia, Cuba, the United States and all around the world as we protest this anniversary and demand immediate freedom for Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando González.

Celebrate the July 26th Movement Print E-mail

Moncada Day & the Gains of the Cuban Revolution

Speakers ~ Films ~ Live Music ~ Poetry

FRIDAY JULY 26th - 7 pm
Joe’s Café (in the Large North Hall)
1150 Commercial Dr. (at William St.)
Vancouver, Canada

On July 26th, 1953 a group of Cuban revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro attacked the Moncada Army Barracks. Although this attack was defeated militarily, taking the lives of dozens of rebel fighters and imprisoning many others, including Fidel Castro, it is seen as the beginning of the Cuban revolution. It is the July 26th Movement, named after this initial defeat, that led the Cuban revolution to victory under the leadership of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and their compatriots.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the attack on the Moncada Army Barracks and the beginning of the Cuban Revolution. Please join with us to commemorate this important occasion and the gains made by the Cuban Revolution with a program of dynamic speakers, poets and film and muscians.

This is a great victory for the people all over the world fighting for an end to the U.S. blockade against Cuba, which for over 50 years has denied the people of Cuba access to basic items from medicines to school supplies.
