On August 10, I blogged about the Cuban Five, including about Leonard Weinglass, the attorney for Cuban Five defendant Antonio Guerrero.
I just learned that Mr. Weinglass will be speaking about the Cuban Five in Washington, DC, as follows: September 12, 2007, 6:00 p.m., Howard University Law School Moot Courtroom, 2900 Van Ness St., NW, Washington, DC 20008. RSVP to Yanet Stable Crdenas, Second Secretary, Cuban Interests Section, 2630 16th St., NW , Washington DC , 20009, (202) 797 8518, ext 105, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I received this information from a listserv, and see that it’s posted to another blog. Considering the RSVP request, being handled by the Cuban Interests Section no less, I don’t know if audience members are being vetted for the “right political pedigree,” which could get me barred, for one. Please let me know if you attend or are given a hard time about attending. I regret that I will not be able to attend, as the event falls at the start of the Jewish new year. Jon Katz.
