      Between 1994 and 1995, Cuba sent five unarmed men,
      Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino,
      Fernando González and René González on a mission to
      infiltrate and expose Miami-based terrorist groups
      such as Alpha 66, Omega 7, Brothers to the Rescue and
      the Cuban American National Foundation, the financial
      backbone of all anti-Cuban terrorist groups. These
      groups are responsible for hundreds of terrorist
      attacks which have taken the lives of thousands of

      The list of atrocities committed by these groups is
      long. It includes the bombing of hotels in Cuba,
      assassinations, spreading diseases, sabotage and
      attacks against Cuba’s supporters in the U.S. such as
      the bombing of the Lincoln Center in 1978 after a
      Cuban ballet. One of the most horrendous attacks was
      the bombing of a Cuban airliner, which took the lives
      of 73 people in 1976. The 5 Cuban Heroes were
      valiantly struggling against this terror, putting
      themselves and their loved ones in mortal danger
      throughout the process.

      After gathering evidence to expose the terrorists,
      Cuba released all the information that the 5 had
      collected to the FBI. On September 12th, 1998 the FBI
      kidnapped the Cuban 5 and put them in solitary
      confinement for 17 months. It was not until 2001 that
      these innocent men were tried and convicted. After a
      seven-month show trial (one of the longest in U.S.
      history), the Cuban 5 were sentenced to between 15
      years and two life sentences, in some cases barred
      from even seeing their families.

      Join us in the battle to free the 5 Cuban Heroes held
      in U.S. Jails!
