Who is Gerardo Hernández?
Hernández is one of the US political prisoners known internationally as the Cuban Five. Convicted by the US government on fabricated “conspiracy” charges and handed draconian sentences, the five have been unjustly imprisoned since 1998.

Their “crime?” Monitoring plans for action by violent counterrevolutionary Cuban-American groups with a 50-year record of deadly attacks on Cuba from US territory with Washington’s complicity.

Please consider bring a friend who might not know about the Cuban Five, and forward this email to people or networks that may be interested.

We look forward to seeing you there!
