September 12th, 2014 marks another year of unjust U.S. imprisonment of the 5 Cuban Heroes. The last 16 years have seen ever growing support and activities for the 5 Cuban Heroes around the world. Although two of the five, René and Fernando, have completed their sentences and returned to Cuba, they have vowed that they will not be free until ALL 5 heroes are free, we echo them in this call! We must take a stand for freedom for the remaining three, Gerardo, Antonio and Ramon! Let us use this 16 years of injustice to unite in Vancouver, across Canada and around the world to demand the immediate freedom of ALL 5 heroes.

The Free the Cuban 5 Committee-Vancouver would like to ask for your support and for you to join with us to make this 16th anniversary the last that our 5 heroes spend apart and locked behind U.S prison bars. Together we will free ALL the Cuban 5!

Conference will be held in English with translation into Spanish available!
