2013: Let's Make Their Freedom a Reality!
Read New Year's messages from the Five below
On behalf of the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five, we want to extend our sincere gratitude for your solidarity and support in all the battles fought during 2012 to free the Five. We wish you and your loved ones, health, a prosperous and committed New Year 2013, and strength and continued inspiration to continue the struggle for the Five Heroes' freedom. May true justice and peace prevail for the peoples of the world.
For nearly 12 years the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five has waged an energetic campaign for the freedom of Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González from U.S. prisons. Although René was released from prison in October 2011, the court is treating him punitively by requiring him to serve a probation sentence of three years in the United States.
Since they were brutally arrested by FBI agents on September 12, 1998, the Five have been unjustly imprisoned. Their only "crime" was protecting the people of Cuba from U.S.-backed Miami-based terrorists. Every day of their continued imprisonment makes their freedom struggle more urgent.
Our complete year-end report is too long to send in a single email. To read about what we have been doing in 2012, and see what we have planned for 2013, click here to download the report.
We have only been able to carry out this high level of organizing and solidarity for Gerardo, Ramón, Antonio, Fernando and René, due to the contributions of supporters like you. We hope that as 2012 comes to an end, you will once again be able to make a generous donation to help us continue the campaign to finally win freedom for the Five, and join us as we work with supporters of the Five in the U.S. and around the world in the effort to win their freedom.
