The People's Choice Award is part of a larger annual Human Rights Awards event organized by Global Exchange. Each year this organization invites their members, supporters and allies to nominate and vote on individuals or groups who they consider to be human rights heroes.
We consider the Cuban 5 to be perfect candidates for this award for fighting to protect the lives of the Cuban people and people in the United States against terrorist attacks. They did this at great personal risk and have had to endure long unjust prison sentences as a consequence. Despite the injustice the Cuban 5 continue to hold their heads high with dignity and resolve.
This nomination and voting campaign is another way to spread the word about the case of the Cuban 5.
The voting begins 9 A.M. March 3, 2014 through 5 P.M. March 21, 2014

TO VOTE FOR THE CUBAN 5 NOW! AND ASK YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE FOR THEM TOO!
One of the criteria for winning is by who gets the most votes. We urge you to cast your vote for them and spread the word to people you know.
Once the online voting concludes, a People's Choice Award committee consisting of Global Exchange and noted activists will review each nominee to determine the winner. The 2014 People's Choice Award will be announced by Global Exchange on April 9th. The winner will receive an award in honor of their work at the Human Rights Awards celebration on May 8, 2014.
