The Weekend Telegraph, June 8, 2013 - Sun, surf and sand will always be Cuba’s main tourist attractions, but a small number of Canadians have found a curiously old-fashioned reason for visiting this beautiful tropical island: a shared longing for social and cultural equality and justice.

WHO ARE THE 5 CUBAN HEROES?

Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González, also known as the Cuban 5, are currently serving outrageously long sentences, including even a double-life sentence plus fifteen years, in the United States. They were wrongly accused and convicted in a U.S. Federal Court of “conspiracy to commit espionage” and other fabricated charges. The 5 were actually unarmed men involved in monitoring Miami-based terrorist organizations, which since 1959 have been responsible for the deaths of over 3,400 people in Cuba, including one resident of Canada, Fabio di Celmo, in 1997. Through their important work, these 5 men were able to prevent further deaths in Cuba.
