Free the Cuban 5!

Comrades,


Five intelligence officers were captured while monitoring known terrorists responsible for numerous bombings and and death of over 3,000 innocent people.

After a show trial, each was sentenced to no less than fifteen years in federal prison. Gerardo Hernandez, the unit commander, was sentenced to two life sentences and Fernando Gonzales, according to NPR has been placed in the infamous Communications Management Unit (aka Guantanamo North) in aptly named Terre Haute Il.



The next meeting of the Marxist Student Union is Thursday, April 12 at 6pm. Our April meeting will be devoted entirely to the Cuban 5. Join the Marxist Student Union to discuss the plight of the Cuban 5 and find out  what you can do to help them.

Stop briefly and imagine how Gerardo Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and René Gonzalez feel at this very moment.

In Solidarity,

Why the Cuban Revolution did not Fail Room Change

Comrades,

in order to facilitate our numbers and Professor Dueñas-Vargas' technology needs we are moving our meeting up one floor to the Shelby room on the 3rd floor of the University Center. Professor Dueñas-Vargas has limited time to speak with us so we will get started promptly at 6pm.

Glenn Beck Calls the Marxist Student Union "a Deadly Group."

Comrades,

I understand that this is technically old news, but I just learned of it today and thought I would share it with you. On November 1, 2011 Glenn Beck read a list of the "hidden supporters" of Occupy Wall Street. Our Marxist Student Union was included among them. Beck goes on to describe us and others as "a deadly group."

See for yourself. I suggest skipping forward about 2.5 minutes in order to avoid his bile.

 Needless to say we and the other organizations included on this list, like the Black Panthers, have nothing in common with white supremacy and find its vile creed worthy of nothing save annihilation. The fact that the ultra-right attempts to associate Fascism with Communism shows their irrational desperation to discredit the people's movement towards peace, equality, and Socialism.

Respect to all our fellow Marxists who we are proud to be counted among including the CPUSA, the SPUSA and Freedom Road. Let's keep up the good work.
