Postcard for Mother’s Day from Gerardo Hernández

On April 29, Gerardo Hernández sent a postcard for Mother’s Day on behalf of the Cuban Five.  Due to a two-week delay in the prison, the postcard did not arrive on time for Mother’s Day.  Nevertheless, Gerardo wanted us to send it out to all the mothers who have been the strongest supporters in the struggle to free the Cuban Five.

Happy Mother's Day

“. . . This Cuban woman, so beautiful, so heroic, so selfless — a flower to love, a star to look at, an armor with which to resist.” — José Martí

Happy Mother’s Day to all the compañeras in Cuba and the world who have honored us with their support!

With love from the Five,
Gerardo Hernández Nordelo,
USP Victorville
May 2010
