Events demanding: Free the Cuban Five!

To mark the 16th anniversary of their unjust imprisonment, supporters of the Cuban Five are organizing actions to demand their immediate freedom. The Cuban Five are guilty of nothing more than trying to prevent terrorism, but have been framed and sent to prison in yet another act of aggression by the U.S. government against Cuba. For more information, read this introduction from the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five. The ANSWER Coalition encourages its supporters to attend the events listed below, which will be updated regularly.
