Cuban Five

See all of Democracy Now!’s coverage of the case of the Cuban Five, who were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage. They say they were not spying on the United States, but trying to monitor violent right-wing Cuban exile groups here responsible for attacks inside Cuba. Four members of the Cuban Five remain locked up while militant exiles remain free in the United States, including Luis Posada Carriles who has been connected to a string of bombings including the downing of a Cuban airliner that killed all 73 on board.
