Supporting ‘The Cuban 5’

Supporting 'The Cuban Five'

Workers Party members in Belfast have taken part in a picket on the United States Consulate in the city to help highlight the injustice of the case of the Cuban 5.

The protest, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions Congress Youth, was called to mark the start of the thirteenth year of  their imprisonment.

The Cuban Five are five Cuban men who are in US prison, serving four life sentences and 75 years collectively, after being wrongly convicted in a US federal court in Miami, in June 2001.

The five are Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González.

All were falsely accused by the US government of committing espionage conspiracy against the United States, and other related
charges. But the Five were actually involved in monitoring the actions of Miami-based terrorist groups in  order to prevent terrorist attacks on Cuba.
