Leonard Weinglass, principal defense attorney for the Cuban Five the five Cubans held captive in US prisons - will discuss their case before the British Parliament as part of his stay in the United Kingdom.

Weinglass will make a series of speeches and give interviews in London, Derby and Manchester, informed the British campaign of solidarity with Cuba, which organizes this tour.

British Rob Miller, who leads the campaign, stated he was very pleased with the visit because it will offer a new vision of the case.

"His visit and the support of the British people will be fundamental to achieve greater public interest and increase the pressure of the British people in favor of the Cuban Five," he said.

This year the campaign organized a vigil in front of the US Embassy to London, and achieved the signing of a declaration by many European Parliament deputies demanding the US government grant the wives and relatives of the Cuban Five the right to visit them.

Similarly, the signing by 110 deputies in the British Lower Chamber was decisive for a motion to support the liberation of the Cuban Five.

The campaign also obtained 10,000 signatures supporting a letter addressed to the US Attorney General, among which were the signatures of Nobel literature prizewinner Harold Pinter and London Mayor Ken Livingstone
