HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 21— The Cuban Five are heroes in their country but in the US, where they have been imprisoned for over 12 years, most people are still totally unaware of their case.

Now, “a series of YouTubes with US personalities are being made to reach out to a wider audience,” informs the International Committee that is seeking their release. One of the first people to speak out on video is Dolores Huerta.

Since the Elian Gonzalez case, trying to obtain the freedom of the Cuban Five has been the most important international cause of the Cuban government over the last decade.
