NLG IC Launches Mothers' Day Campaign to Free the Cuban Five!
"What we need is justice" – Mirta Rodriguez, mother of Antonio Guerrero
The National Lawyers Guild International Committee is launching a new campaign to support the Cuban 5, five Cuban men in U.S. prison for attempting to defend their homeland from violent attacks.
...Continued from home page
The Cuban Five - Gerardo Hernández Nordelo, Ramón Labañino Salazar, Antonio Guerrero Rodríguez, Fernando González Llort and René González Sehwerert – are serving four life sentences and 75 years collectively, after being wrongly convicted in U.S. federal court in Miami, on June 8, 2001.
They have been repeatedly denied family visitation, their wives and mothers denied visas to visit the United States, separated from their loved ones. On Mother’s Day, join the call for the Cuban 5 to be returned home to their mothers, wives, sisters and families!
