Free the Cuban Five!

Issue 

The Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network national consultation decided to support the relaunch of an Australian campaign in support of the "Cuban Five" - five Cubans convicted in the United States in 2001 on charges ranging from conspiracy to commit murder to endangering the security of the US. The Cuban Five are being held in maximum security prisons across the US.

In fact, these men had been working to thwart the persistent attempts by US-based opponents of the Cuban government to commit acts of terrorism and sabotage against Cuba, a campaign of terror that has already claimed more than 3400 lives in Cuba.

The Cuban Five campaign will be relaunched at a protest action outside the US consulate in Martin Place, Sydney, at 5pm on October 13.
