Tuesday Nov. 13 at Howard University in Washington DC: The Case of the Cuban Five with Danny Glover 2



A Howard University School of Law Forum
The Case of the Cuban Five:
Justice or Injustice?

The Cuban Five have been imprisoned in the United States for nearly 14 years and are not widely known. Yet, the outcome of their case will have a profound impact on the U.S. justice system and U.S.–Cuba relations. At the heart of their struggle is the fundamental and constitutional right of a defendant to a fair trial, and the right of Cuba to defend itself from terrorism. There is a movement in the United States and worldwide to demand their freedom.

  1. These bunch of useful idiots are rallying for a lost cause,why don’t they protest against the human right violation in the island of Cuba?Why don they show the reason why these five spies are in prison? If you go to any library,you can find any book on whatever subject you wish but the Cuban Spy ring,I remember that when they got arrested there was minimal coverage of this incident as well as the shot down of the airplanes of brothers to the rescue,we should educate people and give them the real facts who are these five spies and we also should inform the public the reason why they are serving time. The funny part is that all these people that are seeking the release of these spies,none of them have lived in Cuba much less have they suffered under the communist boot.These 5 spies are not Saints,they are officers of the Cuban DI and they are serving a state that sponsor terrorism which sent them to America to steal our military secrets.THEY DID THE CRIME,THEY WILL SERVE THEIR TIME! NO MORE APPEALING,NO MORE REDUCING OF THEIR SENTENCES,LET THEM SERVE THEIR TIME!

  2. We don’t need any relation with a terrorist government that always has supported the enemies of United States of America,The only thing we should do is to advocate to free Cuba of the Castro Tyranny.
