"The Trial - the Untold Story of the Cuban Five"
Narrated by Danny Glover
This documentary explores the U.S. government's use of false conspiracy
charges and secret evidence which laid the basis for the conviction of
five Cuban nationals - Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández, René
González, Antonio Guerrero and Ramon Labanino - who were peacefully
monitoring the activities of counterrevolutionary groups in the United
States who had a history of terrorist attacks against Cuba. They are now
serving draconian sentences in U.S. federal prisons.
The film features revealing interviews with defense and prosecuting
attorneys, Cuban and U.S. experts, and advocates for the Five's freedom.
"The Trial" is a dynamic portrayal that in its search for truth and
justice, forcefully demonstrates the enormous injustice meted out to the
Cuban Five. It makes a convincing factual case for their liberation.
This meeting is part of the International Days of Solidarity with the
Cuban Five from Sept. 12 (1998), the anniversary of their false arrest
to Oct. 6, the anniversary of the first mid-air bombing of a passenger
plane - Cubana 455 as it took off from Barbados - killing all 73
passengers in 1976. Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch who
engineered this violence against Cuban and international civilians walk
free in Miami today
