     On July 26th, 1953 a group of brave young Cubans, led by Fidel Castro, attacked the Moncada and the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes garrisons, symbols of the tyranny and occupation of Cuba under the U.S. puppet regime of Batista.
Although the attack was militarily defeated, it raised the banner of struggle, which would lead to the victory of the Cuban Revolution on Jan. 1st, 1959.
This year we cheer the return of the Cuban Five to their families and their homeland and we dedicate this year’s celebration to the selfless Cuban internationalist healthcare workers who courageously volunteered to battle the Ebola virus in Western Africa and the Cuban internationalist  education workers whose hard work and dedication have taught more than eight million people throughout the world, how to read and write.

AN APPEAL TO YOU ALL ON BEHALF OF THE CUBAN FIVE

We believe that this is a crucial time for all anti-war movement activists, all Canadian Peace Alliance member organizations and, basically, all of us who care for justice and peace, to come out to the following events and join in the struggle to secure freedom for the Cuban Five.  
In the words of Gerardo Hernández:  “Only a jury of millions will bring us home.”

In  conjunction  with  the  rally  in  front  of  the  White  House  and  other  rallies  across  the world,  taking  place  as  part  of  the  third  annual   “5  Days  for  the  Cuban  5

The   CUBAN  FIVE  are   heroes   who   were   accused   and   imprisoned   in   the U.S.   After   having   saved   thousands   of   lives   (risking   their   own  lives   in   the process)   by   infiltrating   U.S.-based   terrorist   groups   that   killed   3,478   people and   maimed   2,099   others   since   the   triumph   of    the   Cuban   Revolution   in 1959,   in   order   to   prevent   further   attacks   against   their   country   and   others!  René   González   and  Fernando   González   were   released   after completing   an   unjust   sentence   of   over   13   years   and   over   17   years respectively.    Today,   Antonio   Guerrero,   Gerardo   Hernández   and  Ramón  Labañino   are   serving   their   16th   year   of   unjust   imprisonment   in   US   jails.  
THE   STRUGGLE   FOR   THEIR    FREEDOM   CONTINUES!!!
