Solidarité arc en ciel pour les cinq Cubains

Un Arcobaleno Di Solidrieta’ Per I Cuban Five

Solidariedade Do Arco Íris Com Os Cinco Cubanos  

The collective hard work of so many lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and other activists and allies in the fight against oppression based on sexuality, gender expression and sex has generated a call for Rainbow Solidarity for the Cuban Five that is arcing the globe.

Two weeks after the call first circulated hundreds of activists and organizations are signing on. Individuals and groups have responded from across the United States--southern Florida to the Pacific Northwest, San Diego to Maine.

International endorsements are already in from Mexico, Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Ireland, Wales, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Germany, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Portugal and Spain

The web page is up, visit: www.freethefiveny.org/rainboweng.htm. Look for the rainbow!

Volunteers from around the world have translated the introduction to the Rainbow Solidarity call which is now posted online in Spanish, English, simplified and traditional Chinese, Farsi, Portuguese, Italian, French and German. More translations are in the works or planned, including a streaming video ASL (American Sign Language) translation. Help with translation into other languages would be greatly appreciated.

Your signature and/or that of your organization will make this call even more powerful.  Sign the call here: http://www.freethefiveny.org/rainbow4the5.html
