Christmas Campaign to Free Ramon, Gerardo and Antonio

Dear Friends,

We are announcing a new campaign, "Together for the Holidays," on behalf of the three remaining members of the Cuban Five still imprisoned in the United States.

Our aim is to urge the president to release them so that they can be home with their families for the Holiday season and the New Year.

We are asking each committee in support of the Five, in their respective countries, to contact personalities who have joined the cause of the Five during these 16 years and ask them to add their names to the enclosed letter.

The letter will be sent to Obama before the Holidays so there is some urgency. The purpose of the campaign is to bring the issue of the Five at a particular time when there is awareness and discussion about the case. There are many new voices asking Obama for their freedom and a fundamental change of policy towards Cuba.

The holidays provide us with a perfect opportunity to push Obama towards a turning point of the struggle for their freedom. We asking you to gather the names of the personalities as soon as possible and begin to send them to the following addresses:

For Spanish-speaking countries: <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;

For the rest of the world: <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;

We only need the names of the personalities, with a brief description of who they are, and the country where they are from.

Time is vital and we must act quickly. Please send us the names of the personalities no later than December 20. We only have a little more than one month to achieve our common goal. Together we can do it.

In solidarity,
Katrien Demuynck, Coordinator of the European Campaign of Solidarity with Cuba
Alicia Jrapko and Graciela Ramírez, International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5

Queridos compañeros,
Estamos anunciando una nueva campaña por nuestros tres hermanos presos: "Juntos en Navidad"*, Juntos con sus amadas familias, Juntos en Cuba con su heroico pueblo.

Se trata de que cada comité en sus respectivos países, contacte a las personalidades que se han sumado a la causa de los Cinco durante estos años y siguen sumándose día a día y les pidan su firma a la carta que les adjuntamos.

Esta es la carta que recibirá el Presidente Obama con las firmas de dichas personalidades y es la que ustedes deben compartir con las personalidades que contacten para que estén de acuerdo en sumar sus nombres.

El objetivo de la campaña es incidir en una fecha de especial sensibilidad y un momento crucial de nuestra causa, donde muchas más voces le están pidiendo a Obama un cambio de política hacia Cuba y la libertad de los tres Patriotas cubanos.

Les pedimos que a la mayor brevedad posible consigan las adhesiones de las personalidades y comiencen a enviarlas a la siguiente dirección:

Para los países de habla hispana: <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;

Para el resto del mundo: <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;

Sólo necesitamos los nombres de las personalidades con una pequeña descripción y el país Ejemplo: Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Premio Nobel de la Paz, Argentina *

El tiempo es vital, debemos actuar con rapidez. Por favor envíennos las adhesiones antes del 20 de diciembre. Solo tenemos un poco más de un mes para lograr nuestro objetivo común.*
