We address you as citizens of a great country, asking you to help in the name of justice.

It’s been for over ten years that five Cuban patriots, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, and Fernando Gonzalez are being held in American prisons under strict conditions.

They did not seek information hazardous to the U.S. national security. This fact was recognized by an American court.

They were introduced inside terrorist organizations in Miami. Their activity was aimed at preventing terrorist attacks on Cuba.

Friends! People of the United States have survived the horror of 9/11 2001. Over three thousand American civilians perished in the rubble of Twin Towers and in the hijacked planes. The world shuddered at the terrorists’ brutality. We were mourning your friends and relatives together with you.

Imagine that some courageous people on this planet managed to inform the White House and Pentagon of preparations for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Would the U.S. citizens not recognize these informers as national heroes?! And if in some unfriendly country those people were declared terrorists and given life sentences, would you not require justice and release of the heroes?!!

Then why give the Cuban patriots a different treatment? Indeed, in December 2001 Federal Judge John Leonard of Miami convicted the five Cuban patriots of antiterrorist activity and sentenced them to unthinkably cruel penalties of imprisonment.

Yes, many Cuban immigrants in Miami don’t like the regime that exists in Cuba. But does this give them a right to blow up planes and ships, hotels and cultural centers in Havana? And don’t people of Cuba have the rights to try to prevent violence in their own homeland?

Friends, do you know that the procedure of judging the five Cuban patriots was conducted with the most severe disregard for the U.S. legislation?

We are absolutely sure that you will be indignant at the fact of breaking the U.S. constitution in favor of political interests. Law has to be the same for everyone!

It is not surprising that tens and hundreds of thousands of people around the world consider the court decision in Miami as a shame of the U.S. justice.

Do you know that 340 Committees of struggle for release of the Cuban heroes exist in 109 countries in the world?

Do you know that in May 2005, a UN human rights commission’s working group on arbitrary arrests made of five independent law experts from different countries (excluding Cuba) rendered the arrests arbitrary and addressed the U.S. government with demand to release the patriots?

It is conventional that the American civil society is very active and reacts passionately to any injustice made in the World.

We are convinced that the arbitrariness of the court with regard to the five Cuban heroes became possible in your country, only because the details of this dirtiest case were hidden from the American public.

Friends! Ask your government, what Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, and Fernando Gonzalez are being held in American prisons for. Why anti-terror heroes were rendered terrorists???

Ask for a fair review of the sentence.

Together we can achieve the justice!

Freedom to the five Cuban heroes!

A fair word without terror and violence!

National Russian Committee of Struggle to Release the Cuban Five

What about the exclamation marks that appear after every other sentence?

Shouldn't they be quarantined in a "hyperbole zone" too?


Anyway, to address the issues that are brought up in the OP: I also believe that Canada ought to be helping Russia to protect other communist regimes in the Western hemisphere. But 'our Canada' won't be able to do this until the Liberals get back into power with their pluralistic and regime-inclusive agenda.

Orthodoxy, your days are passé.
