Irish Demand Freedom for Cuba Five

Irish Demand Freedom for Cuba Five
Dublin, Apr 8 (Prensa Latina) The Irish campaign for the release of the five US-imprisoned Cubans will reach seven national stages later this month, with the presentation of the film Mission Against Terror, the Free Miami 5 Organization announced in a release for www.plenglish.com.


The 48-minute documentary, by Irish Bernie Dwyer and Cuban Roberto Ruiz Rebo, tells the story of five Cuban patriots observing, monitoring and reporting on actions by the Anti-Cuban terrorist network in the United States, which has been responsible for the deaths of almost 3,500 Cubans in a covert terrorist war against the Island.



Having compiled evidence of terrorist plots by Miami Cubans, which was sent to the FBI, the men found themselves arrested rather than the terrorists they tracked, the documentary revealed.



The Cuba Five were placed in solitary confinement for 17 months and subsequently tried in Miami, sentencing them to four life sentences and 75 years collectively.



The "Free the Miami Five Campaign, Ireland" was created to voice the injustices of the case, the human rights abuses that have occurred during their detention and to call for their release.



It has also echoed and denounced a series of unfair cases in Britain like the "Birmingham Six" and the "Guilford Four."



The film will be shown in the cities of Cork, Limerick, Galway, Sligo, Dublin, Belfast, and Derry, and its makers will be delighted to answer questions from the audience in each venue
