Support for the Miami 5 and their Families

Workers Uniting has been supporting families of five Cuban citizens the U.S. government has accused of committing espionage. Scandalously, the government has consistently denied their families visitation rights.

The Miami 5 are five Cuban citizens accused and jailed accused and jailed by the US government of committing espionage against the United States. Scandalously the US government has consistently denied the families of the 5 visitation rights. Human rights organisations have condemned the trial and the treatment of the families. Amnesty International has described the treatment of the Five as ‘contrary both to the standards for the humane treatment of prisoners and to a states’ obligation to protect family life.”

Workers Uniting have already been supporting the families of the Miami 5 and this will continue to be an important part of the international activities this year.
