To: Mr. Barack Obama
President of the U.S.A.
Washington DC.

Dear Mr. President:

I am an artiste from the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados, who rejoiced at your being elected President of the United States of America, me and millions more around the world.
We see you as a man of compassion and fairness and great leadership qualities.

It is therefore with hope and much anticipation that I write to you asking to please release from prison the four remaining members of the Cuban Five, who unfairly and unjustly languish in US prisons.

They were only doing what any good man patriotic citizen would have done to defend their country.

Furthermore, they saved many lives by their bravery and deserve to be praised and not unjustly incarcerated for their heroic act.

As a former Cultural Ambassador of my country (and accepted as cultural Ambassador for the Caribbean English speaking), I appeal to you, Sir, to please send these men home to their families.

Yours respectfully,

Dr. Anthony Carter
J.P., B.S.S., Ph.D UWI
Bridgetown, Barbados
REMEMBER ON FRIDAY 5TH TO CONTACT PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA TO JOIN THE WORLDWIDE DEMAND FOR THE FREEDOM OF HE CUBAN 5
