      Support the Cuban 5 Visa Campaign:

      United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navenethem Pillay met
      with Adriana Perez and Olga Salanueva, two of the wives of the Cuban 5,
      and stated that she will intercede on their behalf.

      Now that Rene Gonzalez has renounced his citizenship and is completing the
      remainder of his parole in Cuba with Olga Salanueva, this means Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo is the only member of the Cuban 5 who has not seen his wife.

      For
      the past 14 years Gerardo Hernandez’s wife, Adriana Perez, hasn’t been
      allowed to visit him.  The U.S. asserts that she is a risk to national
      security, despite the fact that the U.S. government has no proof or
      rationale to justify this belief.  This separation is a violation of
      Gerardo’s civil and international rights as a prisoner.

      Mail or Fax Ms. Pillay the Project's Letter and hold her accountable to her public statement of support. 

      Remind her that the U.S. community supports the Cuban 5 and their wives' visitation rights.

      U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Expresses Support for the case of the Cuban Five
      Mar. 1, 2013
      Reprinted from MinRex

      UNITED NATIONS, GENEVA, March 1, 2013 - United Nations High
      Commissioner for Human Rights, Mrs. Navenethem Pillay, received,
      yesterday, Olga Salanueva, spouse of René González, and Adriana Pérez,
      spouse of Gerardo Hernández.

      During the meeting, Adriana and
      Olga explained to the High Commissioner the necessity that this
      organization intercedes in a direct manner on behalf of the case of the
      Cuban Five for a definitive solution, while they requested their support in order to be granted visas to entry the United States to visit their
      husbands.

      Olga stressed that the supervised freedom regime
      endured by Rene constitutes a legal absurdity that does not comply with
      any purpose and unnecessarily prohibits his return to his Homeland and
      reunite his relatives. Adriana requested a humanitarian gesture that
      requires the political willingness and ethics of the United States
      Government.

      Mrs. Pillay acknowledged the visa denial as a
      violation to the human rights and expressed this cannot constitute an
      additional punishment.

      UN Commissioner expressed her support to
      this fight and her intention to do whatever is possible to find a
      solution to the case.
