Transcript:

For over four decades, the U.S. empire has been waging a secret and deadly war against Cuba. They have bombed fields, poisoned grain, hijacked planes, and plotted invasion. They have trained, paid, and protected terrorists who have cost the lives of thousands of Cubans and virtually crippled their economy through a seemingly everlasting embargo. The Cuban Five, young men who tried to protect their people from these instances of U.S. state terrorism, who have bombed no one, nor planned to, who poisoned no one, nor planned to, who hurt no one, nor planned to, who merely reported the plotting of crimes against their people, face the full foul fury of the empire’s judiciary for trying to stop crimes.

We must all, all of us, protest the unjust convictions of René González, Fernando González, Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández, and Ramón Labañino.

Libertad para el Cinco Cubanos. Free the Cuban Five.

On a Move. Long live John Africa.

From death row,

This is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
