Letter from Gerardo Hernandez

Please see below the text from a letter received by CSC Manchester member Jenni Ford, from Gerardo Hernandez, one of the Miami 5.

From US Penitentary-Victorville, California

Dear Jenni

Many thanks to you and to all our friends in Manchester for your card and birthday greetings! The support of friends like you gives us strength to continue our struggle for justice!


Gerardo, along with Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez, were locked up in separate US jails having being caught on American soil without the US authorities permission, accused of espionage. In fact, they were there, not to spy on the Americans, but to protect Cuban citizens from repeated attacks coming from Miami based terrorist cells. For more information on the Miami 5, please click here
