Momentum is building for the June 13 National Day of Action to demand the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles to Venezuela for trial. On this day, he will go before an immigration judge for a hearing in El Paso, Texas. Demonstrations will take place outside of his immigration hearing in El Paso, and in cities and towns across the U.S. and Canada, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Washington DC, New York City, Seattle, Rochester, Chicago, Charlotte, Hackensack, Minnesota, Milwaukee and Vancouver.

Cuba solidarity and antiwar activists are coming together for the local protests around the country. Among the keynote speakers at the Los Angeles demonstration will be Francisco Letelier, the son of Orlando Letelier, the former ambassador, foreign minister and defense minister under the government of Salvador Allende in Chile , who was killed in a terrorist car bombing in Washington DC in 1976. New CIA and FBI documentation shows that Posada was in the meeting to plan that bombing. The Washington DC protest will be joined by Wayne Smith, former Chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, Cuba, from 1979-1982; Senior Fellow at the Center for International Policy; Adjunct Professor, Johns Hopkins University; and longtime Cuba specialist. The New York City protest will include members of the family of Raymond Persaud, the young 19-year-old man who was killed in the terrorist bombing of Cubana Airlines Flight 455. Raymond was on his way from Guyana to Cuba to study medicine there. In El Paso , Mexican organizations from Juarez and El Paso will be participating, along with antiwar and Cuba solidarity activists from Albuquerque , New Mexico , and other cities.

Please see below for details about the protests in El Paso and elsewhere, downloadable flyers, endorsers, and more. There is still time to get involved by attending a protest in your city, traveling to El Paso, or organizing a local activity if there is not one in your city.
