Postcard campaign launched to 'free the five'.

An international committee that seeks freedom for five Cuban citizens convicted of spying against the United States has started 2012 with a new postcard and poster campaign aimed directly at President Obama.

The image was created by Cuban graphic artist Jorge Martell; it's being printed on 50,000 postcards with help from sympathetic unions in France and Canada. In addition, 10,000 posters will be printed in Venezuela.

"As legal recourses for the Cuban 5 wind down, it is more important than ever to expand our outreach and visibility to bring about awareness of the case that will inevitably be the key ingredient in gaining their freedom," says a press release.
