Extradite Posada to Venezuela. End the 45-Year U.S. War Against Cuba
Regional demonstration in El Paso, TX outside of Posada’s immigration hearing
Locally coordinated protests in cities and towns across the country
Venezuela has formally requested extradition of Luis Posada Carriles, to be tried for the bombing of Cubana Airlines flight 455, in which 73 people were killed on October 6, 1976. The Bush administration is so far refusing to honor the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Venezuela, due to the U.S. government’s long-standing support for anti-Cuba terrorists. Posada Carriles was a CIA agent, trained in assassination, explosives and sabotage. Posada’s terrorist history extends for decades. It is time for justice for his victims.
