Urgent Appeal From "Free the Cuban 5" to Demand Entry Rights to Olga and Adriana (english)
08 Jul 2003
We are urgently requesting your support to help win the right of
Olga Salanueva, wife of René González, and Adriana Pérez, wife
of Gerardo Hernández, to enter the United States for the purpose
of visiting their husbands, who, as you know, are wrongfully
imprisoned in the U.S. Olga and Adriana were recently denied
entry visas for the third time.
Dear friends of the Cuban Five:

We are urgently requesting your support to help win the right of
Olga Salanueva, wife of René González, and Adriana Pérez, wife
of Gerardo Hernández, to enter the United States for the purpose
of visiting their husbands, who, as you know, are wrongfully
imprisoned in the U.S. Olga and Adriana were recently denied
entry visas for the third time.

Below is a sample letter to Colin Powell, Tom Ridge and John
Ashcroft demanding the right of entry for these women. WE
URGE SUPPORTERS TO SEND LETTERS AS SOON AS
POSSIBLE.

As they wait for the appeals of the cases of the Cuban Five,
which could take years, the families should not be denied the
right to stay together. As a consequence of Olga's being denied
entry, Ivette, their 5-year-old daughter, also cannot see her father
René. She last saw her father when she was two years old.
Adriana Pérez has not seen Gerardo in five years.


SAMPLE LETTER

Dear friends, we urge everyone to send letters and faxes to the
following officials. Below is a brief sample letter; please add
your own words as you wish. For more information, please
contact the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five at
freethefive (at) actionsf.org or 415-821-6545. To get more info or a
pdf of the letter or appeal, go to www.freethefive.org.

Dear Sirs,

I urge you to grant entry rights to:

• Olga Salanueva, wife of René González, reg.#58738-004, who
is currently in F.C.I. Edgefield, South Carolina, and to

• Adriana Pérez, wife of Gerardo Hernández reg.#58739-004,
who is currently in U.S.P Lompoc, California.

These women should be able to visit their husbands in the U.S.
People around the world are aware of their cases and
a growing movement is demanding justice for these Cuban
prisoners in the U.S. and visitation rights for their loved ones.
This is a simple matter of keeping families together.

Sincerely,
