Leaonard Weinglass: The struggle to free the Cuban Five from U.S. Prison
Sponsored by the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five
$5 donation requested. All donations benefit the Cuban Five Legal Defense Fund.
The Cuban Five were wrongly convicted by the U.S. government, falsely charged with espionage conspiracy on the U.S. and other related crimes. Their real mission was monitoring the actions of terrorist anti-Cuba organizations that operate out of Miami, in order to prevent terrorism against the people of Cuba and the U.S. The Cuban Five are considered heroes by millions of people around the world who know of their case. Leonard Weinglass is a well-known civil rights attorney, whose cases include the Chicago 8, Angela Davis, the Pentagon Papers case and others. He now is one of the appeals attorneys in the case of the Cuban Five.
