National Committee to Free the Cuban 5

Dear Friends,

We are all aware of the horrendous devastation in Gaza. As we write this, 797 Palestinians have been killed and 5,118 injured. The dead include 190 children and 75 women. With each day, the numbers grow. What is happening is truly genocide.

On July 8, the Cuban government issued the following statement:

  • Cuba strongly condemns the latest Israeli aggression against the population of the Gaza Strip.
  • Israel uses its military and technological superiority to implement a policy of collective punishment with a disproportionate use of force that causes loss of innocent civilian lives and massive property damage.

We call on the international community to demand that Israel put an end to this new escalation of violence. Only talks on an equitable basis can lead to a just peace that allows the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable rights and the definitive establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital in East Jerusalem.

On July 17Fidel Castro wrote, “I only wish to express my solidarity with the heroic people who defend the last sliver remaining of what was their homeland for thousands of years.” Cuban Five Hero René González, free in Cuba and active on Twitter, sent a tweet message of support for the Palestinian people.

In the United States and around the world, people are standing up for Gaza. The National Committee to Free the Cuban Five urges everyone to join the protests in your area to demand an end to Israel’s aggression and an end to the military, financial, and diplomatic support that the US and other governments give to Israel.

Stop the massacre in Gaza!

End US aid to Israel!

Free Palestine!

Free the Cuban Five Heroes Now!
