        The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign urges all our supporters to support the Project's Mother's day Initiative:


        Join The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5’s Mother’s Day for the Cuban 5 Initiative. Starting from Thursday May 1st-Sunday May 11th (Mother’s Day) we are calling on people to fax or mail out this letter to Louise Arbour The High Commissioner of Human Rights of the Office for Human Rights-United Nations Office at Geneva. We are asking her to intercede on behalf of the Cuban 5’s mothers/wives to pressure the U.S. government to grant them VISAs to visit their husbands/sons! !



        Due to the U.S. government’s denial to approve visas, Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo and Rene Gonzalez Sehwerert have not seen their wives since their incarceration! ! Others in the Cuban 5 have not seen their parents, wives and children with regularity, because the U.S. government has taken prolonged periods of time to issue them visas. The U.S. government’s denial of visitation rights is a cruel and horrible form of psychological torture. Their rationale for denial is ridiculous and baseless; none of these family members are a threat to national security.


        Download the pdf format of this letter at the Project website and send it out: http://www.freethec uban5.com/ id12.html


        Give the Cuban 5’s mothers and wives the great Mother’s Day gift of ACTION AND SOLIDARITY!!
