Huge Banner for the Cuban 5 on Northern California Freeway

Today April 5th, while people from all over the world were calling and sending emails to the White House demanding that Obama free the Cuban 5 antiterrorist fighters, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 dropped a huge banner at morning rush hour over one of the busiest freeways in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As thousands of people drove by on Interstate 80 they could read the bold message, “OBAMA FREE THE CUBAN FIVE NOW!”.  Many drivers honked their horns in approval from their trucks, buses and cars.


Join Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers and Actor Danny Glover in this historic 5 days of solidarity and protest to demand the immediate freedom of Gerardo, Ramon, Antonio, Fernando and Rene.

There is still time to support the 5 Days for the Cuban 5 to take the case of the Five to the Capital of the United States.
