Who are the Cuban Five?


Washington secretly paid journalists during trial

While the U.S. government prosecuted the Five, Miami journalists
who reported on the trial with extremely biased coverage were
secretly on the government payroll, unknown to the defense.

On The Legal Front
Press conference with Martin Garbus

Renowned lawyer Martin Garbus, called "legendary, one of the best trial lawyers in the country" by Time magazine, has joined the team of lawyers appealing the convictions of the Cuban Five. In early June Garbus and Supreme Court specialist Thomas Goldstein, together with long-time Cuban Five lawyer Richard Klugh, filed a motion in U.S. Southern District Court, seeking an evidentiary hearing and the right to discovery on behalf of Gerardo Hernández, in his Habeas Corpus appeal. This motion relates specifically to the issue of U.S. government payments to members of the Miami media during the trial of the Five, journalists whose coverage helped to add to the already poisonous atmosphere in Miami against the Five.

Listen to Garbus explain the latest developments at a June 13, 2012 press conference:

Raising the VISIBILITY of the struggle
Full-page ad in the Washington Post!

On April 30, 2012, the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five published a full-page ad in the Washington Post, where it was seen by hundreds of thousands of people. This effort to raise the visibility of the demand to free the Five was thanks to a year-long joint fund-raising efforts of Cuban Five committees worldwide.

Extradite CIA AssasSin Luis Posada Carriles
Wanted for terrorism in Venezuela, Cuba, and Central America;
Living in Miami, protected by the U.S. Government

Luis Posada Carriles is the most notorious of the many Miami-based terrorists who the Cuban Five were monitoring and preventing from carrying out further acts of terrorism against the people of Cuba and others around the world. His most notorious crime was masterminding the mid-air explosion of Cubana Flight 455 in 1976, killing all 73 people on board. He is wanted in Venezuela on 73 counts of murder, and the U.S. government has been studiously ignoring the Venezuelan government's extradition request.
