Join the Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 in our 
Christmas for the Cuban 5 Campaign!

Due to the U.S. government's denial to approve visas,  Gerardo 
Hernandez Nordelo and Rene Gonzalez Sehwerert have not seen their 
wives, Adriana Perez and Olga Salanueva, since their incarceration!! 
Others in the Cuban 5 have not seen their parents, wives and children 
with regularity. The U.S. government has taken prolonged periods of 
time to issue them visas. The U.S. government's denial of visitation 
rights is a cruel and horrible form of psychological torture.  Their 
rationale for denial is ridiculous and baseless; none of these family 
members are a threat to national security.

We are asking people to fax or mail out this letter to Ms. Navanetham 
Pillay, The NEW High Commissioner of Human Rights of the Office for 
Human Rights-United Nations Office at Geneva.  We are asking her to 
intercede on behalf of the Cuban 5's mothers/wives to pressure the 
U.S. government to grant them VISAs to visit their husbands/sons!!

During this holiday season, December 1st-31st, give the Cuban 5 the 
gift of action!  Fax or mail out this letter! Forward this email to 
all of your friends and ask them to do the same.  Our mass letter 
writing campaigns work! Together our voices have power! Make freedom Happen!
