A Ship to Cuba: 5 Pirates for the Cuban 5

A spiritual journey in solidarity with the Cuban Five, a journey for peace and for justice. The Camilla, a 30 ft sailboat, will travel from Annapolis, Maryland, to Gibara/Holguin and will join the 8th International Colloquium for the Liberation of the Cuban Five and Against Terrorism.

We are a group of past Cuba travelers that seek to exercise our constitutional rights that are ensured by the freedom of speech, our group proclaims that those that dislike Cuba have a right to do so, those that do not wish to travel to Cuba do not have too, those that do not wish to trade with Cuba do not have too, the ones that love Cuba, cannot constitutionally make law that forces anyone to trade with Cuba, or travel to Cuba, nor is it then constitutional to enact law that doesn’t allow trade or travel, or that penalizes anyone that trades with Cuba, or travels to Cuba.

If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey, he is obligated to do so.” ~Thomas Jefferson

Our group speaks up against terrorism, and the hypocrisy that surrounds the US governments foreign policy on terrorism, since the infamous and notorious international terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles, is protected by the same US government that has declared war on terrorism after 9/11, and in the name of security the US government is now levying war upon the people of the United States, upon their rights, upon their freedoms, but there is no war on terror, there is only a war on truth. Our group also advocate for a coalition of unity for the freedom of all political prisoners, including but not limited to the Cuban Five, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, Bradley Manning, Puerto Rican political prisoners, as well as trade union and youth group leaders, and the political activists that are political prisoners in the Americas.

The Cuban Five are Gerardo Hernández Nordelo, Ramón Labañino Salazar, Rene González Sehwerert, Antonio Guerrero Rodríguez and Fernando González Llort.

The Cuban Five are true anti-terrorist fighters, true heroes, they infiltrated terrorist groups in Miami, Florida, and saved countless of precious human lives, even US citizens, whether they knew it or not, benefited from a safer world, by their actions. In 1998, the Cuban authorities presented the accumulated data, facts and numbers to the FBI, but the FBI arrested the Cuban Five instead of the terrorists, those Five brave heroes that had provided the evidence of the terrorist activities on US soil to the Cuban Authorities, they were later convicted on false charges of conspiracy to commit espionage. Thus, our group is asking if the conviction of the Cuban Five is really just a confession, unintentionally made by the US government, by definition espionage can only be committed by spying on a government, so if, infiltrating and monitoring terrorist groups resulted in that the Cuban Five were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage in the USA, is that not then a confession by the US government that it employs terrorists? While innocent women and children are drone murdered in the ghost hunt for made up terrorists to increase the coffers of the military industrial complex, real terrorists are free in Miami, Florida, United States of America, rubber stamped and approved by Uncle Sam.

We cannot make this journey without you, we need your support and we humbly request your assistance, dock fees are very expensive, boating is overall very expensive, the ship still needs a little bit of work and materials are needed. We follow the mantra of the late Reverend Lucius Walker, and his legacy, the Pastors for Peace, and we lift up their message, “Love is our license.”

The Ship

The name of the ship is the Camilla, she is a 1978 O’day 30, fiberglass sailboat, 29′ 11” LOA, with two engines, one inboard 12 hp diesel engine, and one outboard 9.8 hp gasoline engine. The galley includes a refrigerator, a microwave oven, pressurized running water, icebox, and a butane stove, the ship sleeps six, but has only five berths. The restroom has pressurized running water and a toilet, there is a separate V-birth cabin with a door and hatch that sleeps two, the ship has both A/C and heat, and she is equipped with solar panels, but she can also be hooked up to the power at a dock. She is fully equipped, she has a chart-plotter/fish-finder gps and she has all the necessary safety equipment on board. She is being worked on to be in tip top shape for the journey.

The Mission

We are a group of past Cuba travelers that are uninsured in the Untied States of America and while we are in Cuba, we intend on seeking the excellent care of Cuba and its humanistic revolution, which has excelled Cuba from 9.2 doctors per 10,000 inhabitants in 1958, to the number one ranking in the world with 67.2 per 10,000 in 2011, a revolution that thus far has given back the sight to more than one million poor people through ‘Operation Miracle’, a revolution that is educating poor people from all over the world to become doctors, a revolution with more than 26,000 doctors in the field serving the poorest of the poor worldwide, after which our group seeks to join the 8th International Colloquium for the Liberation of the Cuban Five and Against Terrorism.

Our group also advocates for the immediate release of all US political prisoners, and the arrest of all the internationally infamous and notorious terrorists associated with the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles. Policy of hypocrisy is not law, such “law” is based upon hearsay and he said, she said does not hold up in court. The piles of evidence accumulated in the case of terrorist activities carried out from the shores of Miami and Florida are not circumstantial. We stand firmly with ‘A Ship to Gaza’!

While the ship is in Cuba we intend to purchase honey, which we will bring to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and sell for a small profit, for which we intend to purchase rice, which we will take to Cuba to sell for a small profit.
