Rally at White House to Free the Cuban Five

June 8th, 2014

Baltimore PostExaminer

On Saturday afternoon, June 7th, hundreds of Human Rights activists demonstrated in front of the White House. They demanded the release of the “Cuban Five.” They have been lanquishing in US prisons since September 12, 1998. Supporters claim that their original trial in Miami was “unfair,” and that the main charge against them of engaging in a “conspiracy to commit espionage” was unfounded. Amnesty International, among other groups, has criticized the treatment by the federal government of the Cuban Five as “unnecessarily punitive.” To learn more, go to: http://www.thecuban5.org/who_are_thecuban5.html Ms. Heather Benno, a social justice activist, an attorney and a member of the Committee to Free the Cuban Five, spoke about the reasons for the demonstration. She called for immediate freedom for the Cuban Five and labeled them “political prisoners.”
