To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the unjust imprisonment of the
Cuban 5, the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 is
organizing an East Coast tour with Canadian author Stephen Kimber who
will be presenting his newly released book///*"What Lies Across the
Water-The Real Story of The Cuban Five."*/
Noted American linguist, philosopher, and political scientist *Noam
Chomsky* will be speaking with Kimber about the long history of
terrorist attacks against Cuba. The "Cuban 5" came to the U.S. in the
90's to infiltrate and monitor the activities ofviolent Cuban exile
groups. For their heroic acts they deserve medals butinstead they are
serving long sentences in U.S. prisons.
Kimber's book is the result of an exhaustive research effort, including
the author's review of more than 20,000 pages of court records. His
style is riveting from the first page to the last as he leads the reader
through the twists and turns of their mission leading up to the arrest
of the Cuban 5. Stephen Kimber is a professor of journalism at the
University of King's College in Halifax and an award-winning writer,
editor and broadcaster.
Books will be available for sale and signing by author.
