A home in Takoma Park held a house meeting for 35 people advocating for the release of the so-called Cuban Five by the U.S. Government. The house meeting, reported by The Militant via Google News, was one of several events surrounding a September 13, 2014 gathering in the District by advocates for the Cuban agents. The five men were arrested in Miami in 1998, and convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, conspiracy to commit murder, acting as an agent of a foreign government, and other illegal activities in the United States.
The DC-area 3-day event included an art exhibit of works by one of the convicted agents created in prison, lobbying, and picketing, according to The Militant.
There's a minor Montgomery County connection to the Cuban Five case. It had been rumored that the Obama administration considered exchanging the convicted spies for Potomac resident Alan Gross, who has been imprisoned in Cuba for several years. Gross was a USAID subcontractor working to provide communication equipment to Jewish residents of Cuba when he was arrested in 2009.
