      September 12th, 2013 is an international day of action, marking the 15th year anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban 5. These U.S. held Cuban political prisoners were incarcerated for protecting Cuba from U.S. sponsored terrorist actions. One has returned to Cuba after having completed his sentence, the others remain imprisoned.
      The Cuban 5 (Gerardo Hernández, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labanino, Fernando Gonzalez), sent by Cuba to report on the anti-Cuban terrorist networks operating in Miami. They collected information for Cuba, which gave much of it to the FBI to thwart a terrorist plot to blow up a civilian airliner heading to Cuba. Those the Cuban 5 monitored included Orlando Bosch and Posada Carriles, guilty of blowing up a Cuban passenger plane in 1976, killing 73 civilians. Bosch was pardoned by Bush Sr.  Luis Posada Carriles remains free in Miami. Yet the FBI did not arrest the Miami terrorists, but jailed the Cuban 5 in 1998. They were convicted of “conspiracy” to commit murder and espionage, and sentenced from 15 years to life. The UN Human Rights Commission, 10 Nobel Prize winners, and even Amnesty International have condemned their trial.
