Washington DC will be the scene of an important day of action on September 23 to highlight the ongoing struggle for justice against U.S.-sponsored terrorism in Cuba and Latin America.

Thirty years after the car-bombing assassination of Orlando Letelier, (former Chilean Foreign Affairs Minister under Salvador Allende,) and U.S. activist Ronnie Moffit on Washington's Embassy Row, and 30 years after the mid-air bombing of the Cubana plane that killed 73 people-both crimes perpetrated by U.S.-backed terrorists-justice for the victims of terrorism is still out of reach.

Successive U.S. administrations, directly responsible for training and arming the assassins Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, have done everything to cover up the U.S. role in these deadly terrorist attacks.

Washington's policy is even more egregious by the wrongful imprisonment of five Cuban anti-terrorists since their FBI arrest eight years ago, on Sept. 12, 1998. The "crime" of the Cuban Five was working to stop terrorist attacks on their country by right-wing paramilitary groups based in south Florida.

The U.S. government harbors terrorists while prosecuting and imprisoning the Cuban Five anti-terrorists-Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labańino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González.

Join Us in Washington DC on Saturday, September 23!
