The three remaining members of the Miami 5 released from US gaol today - and fly home to Cuba!
United Left today celebrates the release of the three remaining members of the so-called "Miami 5" from US jail - and joins with the Cuban people in welcoming them home at last! We share in the joy of the wives and families who are being reunited with their free men in Havana tonight. We also celebrate the release of US citizen Alan Gross and his return to his wife and family tonight, as part of the agreed prisoner exchange.
United Left very much welcomes President Obama's statement tonight opening talks towards normalising US relations with Cuba. Of crucial importance will be the prospect of ending the USA's pernicious economic blockade of Cuba, which has done so much damage to Cuba's progress and prosperity.
