Free All the Cuban 5 Now!
Join the Yellow Ribbon Campaign!
Javier Domokos, Cuban Consul General in Toronto, Speaks on the Case of the Cuban 5

Speakers, Multimedia, Discussion

SATURDAY, October 19
Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House
800 East Broadway (One block East of Fraser St.)

September 12, 2013 marked 15 years since the original imprisonment of the Cuban 5 anti-terrorist Heroes. A lot has changed since then. The international campaign demanding their freedom has grown substantially. One of the Cuban 5, René González, has also returned to Cuba permanently. All in all, the Cuban 5 have become the most well known political prisoners in the world. Proof of this was recently demonstrated again through the successful, “Yellow Ribbons for the Cuban 5” campaign initiated by René upon his return to Cuba.  Yellow ribbons covered all of Cuba, and then spread across every continent in the world in an increasingly diverse, coordinated and ongoing effort to raise awareness about this critical human rights case. For the first time in 15 years, the majority of major international press agencies were forced to cover the case at the same time.

The stakes continue to be high. Four innocent men remain in jail 15 years after their original imprisonment, while the U.S.-backed terrorists they exposed walk free in Miami. Gerardo Henandez  continues to face a double life sentence, plus 15 years, and would die in prison if the U.S. government has its way. The campaign to “Free All the Cuban 5 Now!” is at a crucial stage, and the clock of injustice continues to tick.

Please join us for a special event featuring the Cuban Consul General in Toronto, Javier Domokos, to discuss the past 15 years of campaigning for the freedom of the Cuban 5, and the prospects and challenges for the future.

JAVIER DOMOKOS, Cuban Consul General in Toronto, Canada Javier graduated from the Havana's “Instituto Superior de Relaciones Internacionales” (ISRI) in 1992. Since 1992, Javier has been posted in several diplomatic missions around the world including Turkey, Zimbabwe and Kenya, during this time he has also worked for Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
