      The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5
      "Ours may be one of the most ridiculous accusations of espionage in the history of this country"- Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo, The Cuban 5
      This September 12th, 2012 will mark the 14th year anniversary of the arrest of the Cuban 5; five US held Cuban political prisoners incarcerated for protecting Cuba from U.S. sponsored terrorist actions.
      In 2006, President Ricardo Alarcon, of the Cuban Parliament, declared Sept. 12th through October 6th to be a period of time to raise awareness on the case of the Cuban 5. The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 is committed to building an international movement for the Cuban 5’s freedom by extending this period of time to be a full month (Sept. 12th-October 12th) and calling it "Free the Cuban 5 Month."
      During this month we organize a calendar of events to raise awareness about the Cuban 5 and how people can support their release!
      Please support the Free the Cuban 5 picket on Sept 12th,  the Vicente Feliu concert on Saturday Sept. 15th at 1199, the special Film screening of "South of the Border" on Sept. 22nd and support the Cuban 5 call in day on Oct. 12th!

      A Leading Voice of the Cuban Nueva Trova Movement
      The Nueva Trova Movement is a distinct musical tradition that emerged in Cuba in the early 1960's heavily influenced by the events surrounding the Cuban Revolution in 1959. One of these singer songwriters is Vicente Feliu who has performed in more than 20 countries in the Americas, Europe and Africa. He has shared the stage with numerous other Cuban musicians from the same movement including Silvio Rodríguez and Pablo Milanés. He has also performed with Luis Eduardo Aute and Caco Senante (Spain), Isabel Parra and Inti Illimani (Chile), León Gieco and Mercedes Sosa (Argentina), Jackson Browne, Pete Seeger, Holly Near and Little Steven (United States), Daniel Viglietti and Alfredo Zitarrosa (Uruguay), and Luis Enrique and Carlos Mejía Godoy (Nicaragua). Currently he directs the cultural center Canto de Todos that promotes musical gatherings and exchanges between the countries of Latin America.
