As part of the Sixth Annual Labor Conference in Tijuana Mexico, a special evening in support of the Cuban Five will be featuring Olga Salanueva, wife of Rene Gonzalez, one of the Cuban Five political prisoners held in the US.

The Cuban Five were arrested in 1998 and accused of conspiracy and other related charges. They were monitoring terrorists groups in Miami to protect the lives of Cuban and American citizens as well. They are serving long and outrageous sentences in five US prisons spread out around the country. The Five are considered heroes in their country and enjoy the support from thousands of people around the world. While these five innocent men are languishing in US prisons, admitted terrorists such as Luis Posada Carriles continue to be protected by past and this new administration.
In addition to the unjust sentences against the Five, the US government has denied two of them the basic human right to be visited by their wives.
