New injustice in the case of the Five
April 8.—Authorities at the Victorville Penitentiary
in California have refused to allow the U.S. actor
Danny Glover a planned visit to Gerardo Hernández,
according to a communiqué from the International
Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5.
authorities informed Glover, who has visited the
Cuban anti-terrorist on nine occasions since 2010,
that he would not be admitted, since they were not
aware of any planned visit.
Committee notes that this is a totally arbitrary
decision, given that any person included on a
prisoner’s list has the right to visit.
communiqué also thanks Danny Glover for his constant
support of the liberation of Gerardo and his four
brothers in struggle.
government attempts to isolate Gerardo from his
family members and friends have been a consistent
for 15 years. During this period, his wife Adriana
Pérez has repeatedly been denied a visa to visit
Gerardo in prison.
