Danny Glover Visits Gerardo Hernandez

International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5

On Sunday August 8, renowned actor Danny Glover visited Gerardo
Hernandez at USP Victorville, California. The meeting caused a big
stir in the prison that just a few days before had held Gerardo in
"the hole" under inhumane conditions.

The plans for this meeting took several months in the making and
could not have come at a more opportune moment to symbolize the
tremendous support for Gerardo after what he had just been forced to endure.

Gerardo reported that he was moved by their time together and Danny's
commitment to the struggle for the freedom of the Cuban Five.

Danny Glover is a member of the International Commission for the
Rights of Family Visits that 5 months ago, on March 8, sent a letter
to Hillary Clinton and Janet Napolitano asking that visas for Olga
Salanueva, wife of Rene Gonzalez and Adriana Perez, wife of Gerardo
Hernandez be granted.

Glover recently made three youtubes about Gerardo that are listed below
