On April 10, family members of the Cuban Five imprisoned in the United States have an appointment in the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, Cuba, to request their visas. This will be the tenth time that Adriana Perez, wife of Gerardo Hernandez, will request a visa to see her husband in a prison in the U.S. where he is serving an unjust sentence. During a decade, the United States government has denied this couple the possibility of seeing each other.

The International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five asks individuals to support them and their family members by faxing, calling or sending a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton no later than April 10th to request the following:

To immediately grant a humanitarian visa to Adriana Pérez to visit her husband Gerardo Hernández and put an end to the violation of the right of family visits.

To grant multiple visas for the other members of the family of the Cuban Five

The Committee also asks individuals to contact the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, to request the following:

To immediately grant a humanitarian visa to Olga Salanueva. On July 2008, Olga was unjustly classified as “permanently ineligible.” Ask Mrs. Napolitano to exempt Olga Salanueva of that condition by granting her a humanitarian visa to visit her husband Rene González in a U.S. prison.
