Sample letter

RE: Five Cubans unjustly imprisoned in the United States

Dear President Obama,

I am writing to you at Christmas, and on the anniversary of the International Day on Human Rights to ask you to show humanity and respect for justice and to free Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González who have been unjustly imprisoned in United States jails for more than twelve years since 12 September 1998.

On 13 October this year, Amnesty International asked the US government to review the case of the Five and to mitigate any injustice against them. You have the constitutional power to do this today.

Please act now and show compassion this Christmas. Please undo the injustice that has been carried our against these men who your own security experts admit were no threat to the United States, but were solely in your country to gather information on violent groups planning terrorist attacks against the Cuban people.

Yours sincerely


Please feel free to use the above letter or write in your own words to President Obama.

If there is no response to the phone line, please leave a message calling for freedom for the Five.
