The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 is asking all freedom loving people to call President Obama the week of Father’s Day to ask him to free the Cuban 5; five U.S. held political prisoners incarcerated for 13 years for fighting against terrorism in Cuba and the United States.
Remind President Obama that for the past 13 years these innocent men have been separated from their families and friends. Tell him that he has the power to reunite these men with their loved ones!
Call every day! Ask your friends and family members to call in as well! Thousands of messages will let President Obama know that there is a mass movement calling for the freedom of these five men!
Make your call the week of Mon. June 11th through
Sun. June 17th
Call President Obama at 202-456-1111!
Sample Script (optional):
This message is for President Obama, I ask that you use your executive power to free the Cuban 5. For 13 years, the Cuban 5 have been unjustly incarcerated for protecting their homeland Cuba and the United States from terrorist actions.
They have the support of various reputable actors, academics and civil rights leaders, such as: Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, Cindy Sheehan and Angela Davis. As well as the support of thousands of people throughout the United States and the world.
Only you have the power to set these men free! Please end this long standing injustice by sending these men home.
