Letters for the relatives of the Cuban 5

Due to the US government’s denial to approve visas, Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo and Rene Gonzalez Sehwerert have not seen their wives since their incarceration!! Others in the Cuban 5 have not seen their parents, wives and children with regularity. The US government has taken prolonged periods of time to issue them VISAs. The US 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 US government to grant them VISAs to visit their husbands/sons!!
