Protest U.K. visa denial to René González!
This coming Friday and Saturday, an International Commission of Inquiry into the case of the Cuban Five will take place in London, England. René González, Cuban Five hero who was freed from prison in 2011 and finally allowed to return home to Cuba last year, was scheduled to be the principal witness before that Commission. The U.K. government at the last minute denied him a visa to enter England, on the pretext that René had spent more than four years in prison.
The visa denial, almost certainly done in coordination with the U.S. government, is an outrage. Every day of the 13 years that René spent in prison was an injustice, and denying him a visa based on that prison term is a further injustice. Please join with us in demanding that U.K. Prime Minister reverse this outrageous decision, and allow René to enter England and attend the Commission.

You must open that email and click the link in the email so that your message will actually be sent. The conference starts Friday, and time is of the essence, so please do it right now!
