Unjustly imprisoned in the U.S. for Defending Cuba: The Case of the Cuban Five

Wrongly imprisoned now for 14 years, the Cuban Five are not widely known in the United States, yet the outcome of their case will have a profound impact on the U.S. justice system and U.S.-Cuba relations. At the heart of their struggle is the fundamental and constitutional right of a defendant to a fair trial, and the right of Cuba to defend itself from terrorism. There is a movement in the U.S. and worldwide to demand their freedom.
