      The Brooklyn Law School Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild Presents the
      cuban five and the U.S. role in terrorism against cuba

      Wednesday, April 11 at 6 pm
      Brooklyn Law School Subotnick Center
      11th Floor 250, Joralemon Street

      The Cuban Five are political prisoners in U.S. prison, unjustly convicted
      and sentenced to four life terms for peaceably opposing U.S.-sponsored
      terrorism and defending their country of Cuba. Their
      ongoing legal struggle has major rami. cations in the constitutional right
      of defendants to an impartial jury trial. A 10-min. video will also be
      shown.

      A reception with vegan food and wine will follow.

      Speakers:

      Gloria La Riva is director of the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five,
      and president of the Typographical Sector of the Northern California Media
      Workers Union Lo. 39521 (CWA). She was co-editor of the book on Fidel
      Castro's speeches, Cuba at the Crossroads (1997-Ocean Press), and produced
      the documentary videos NATO Targets, Workers' Democracy in Cuba (1996), and
      the award-winning Genocide by Sanctions: The case of Iraq (1998).

      Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, a constitutional rights attorney, is co-founder of
      the Partnership for Civil Justice (PCJ), Co-Chair of the National Lawyers
      Guild Mass Defense Committee, and serves on the
      Steering Committee of the ANSWER Coalition.

      Heidi Boghosian is executive director of the National Lawyers Guild and
      co-host of the radio show "Law and Disorder."

      The case of the Cuban Five is an organizational priority for the Guild and
      many of its attorneys who submitted amicus briefs on constitutional
      violations in their trial. She is traveling to Cuba in April to conduct
      research and in-person interiews about the Five.

      NEW YORK TIMES PETITION!! WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!

      "NEW YORK TIMES COVER THE CUBAN 5!!", was one of many slogans over 60
      activists chanted a month ago in front of the New York Times Building!! The

      article on the Cuban 5.

      In response to President Alarcon's call for a second international period of
      time to raise awareness for the Cuban 5 (Dec. 12th-27th), The Popular
      Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 has organized the following
      initiative:
