URGENT ACTION FOR VISAS FOR FAMILIES OF THE CUBAN FIVE

To all those who are defenders of just causes:

On April 10th, family members of the Cuban Five imprisoned in the 
United States have an appointment in the U.S. Interests Section in 
Havana, Cuba, to request their visas. This will be the tenth time 
that Adriana Perez, wife of Gerardo Hernandez, will request a visa to 
see her husband in a prison in the U.S. where he is serving an unjust 
sentence. During a decade, the United States government has denied 
this couple the possibility of seeing each other.

We ask you to join in this urgent action to support them and their 
family members by faxing, calling or sending a letter to U.S. 
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton immediately and no later than 
April 10th to request the following:
    * To immediately grant a humanitarian visa to Adriana Perez to 
visit her husband Gerardo Hernandez and put an end to the violation 
of the right of family visits.
    * To grant multiple visas for the other members of the family of 
the Cuban Five
Contact Information:

Washington, DC 20520

Fax number: 1-202-647-2283        Phone number: 1-202-647-4000

We also ask you to contact the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet 
Napolitano, to ask her the following:
    * To immediately grant a humanitarian visa to Olga Salanueva. On 
July 2008, Olga was unjustly  classified as "permanently ineligible." 
Ask Mrs. Napolitano to exempt Olga Salanueva of that condition by 
granting her a humanitarian visa to visit her husband Rene Gonzalez 
in a U.S. prison.
