The obsession with antibodies has let us down badly because there's more to the immune system than antibodies, not all antibodies protect well against respiratory infection, and some antibodies cause auto-immune attacks.

PRESS RELEASE

Announcing the Visit to Ireland of Philip Agee

After blowing the whistle on the dirty tactics of his CIA bosses in the 70s, Philip Agee was forced into exile. Thirty years on he has found a safe haven in Cuba, but his fight to expose the complicity of Washington in terrorism goes on.

Free the Miami Five and Cuba Support Group Ireland are pleased to jointly sponsor the visit to Ireland of this former CIA undercover agent and author later this month.

Agee is in Ireland to bring attention to the case of the Miami Five and to promote a new film by Bernie Dwyer and Roberto Ruis called “One Man’s Story: Philip Agee, Cuba and The CIA”. This is a follow up to the filmmaker’s previous successful tour of Ireland with their “Mission against Terror” film, also on the case of the Miami Five.

We are pleased to confirm that all public meetings will be chaired by very distinguished human rights academics, attesting to the global profile of the case of the Miami Five and the miscarriage of justice that has seen them spend eight years in jail in the USA for seeking, through entirely non-violent means, to prevent terrorist crimes against Cuba.

The following is the tour itinerary:

BELFAST Peter Froggatt Centre, Queens University Belfast, 1pm Friday 30 March 2007
- chaired by Professor Denis O'Hearn

DUBLIN Walton Theatre, Trinity College Dublin, 7.30pm Tuesday 3 April 2007
- chaired by Professor Ivana Bacik

GALWAY Town Hall Theatre, 8pm Thursday 5 April 2007
- chaired by Professor William Schabas

Admission free, all welcome.

A SHAMEFUL INJUSTICE
by Philip Agee

Saturday March 10, 2007
The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,2030677,00.html

There is a wave of progressive change sweeping Latin America and the Caribbean after the many lonely years in which Cuba held high the torch, with free universal healthcare and education, and world-class cultural, sports and scientific achievements. Although you won't find a Cuban today who says things are perfect - far from it - probably all would agree that compared with pre-revolutionary Cuba, there is a world of improvement.

(Continued at link above)

Philip Agee, a former CIA secret operations officer, is author of Inside the Company: CIA Diary. He travels in Cuba and Latin America as a campaigner, and manages an online travel service to Cuba.

WHO ARE THE MIAMI FIVE?
Five Cubans who were trying to stop Miami based terrorist groups from carrying out violent actions against the people of Cuba. They were found guilty of charges ranging from murder to espionage by a court in Miami, which relied on the evidence of convicted terrorists. All are innocent of the charges brought against them. Extensive intimidation of jurists by these same terrorists was a feature of the trial. They are currently appealing their convictions.

CAMPAIGN AIMS
The release and exoneration of the five victims of this obvious miscarriage of justice.

CAMPAIGN DEDICATION
The campaign is dedicated to the memory of the 3,478 Cubans killed and 2,099 maimed at the hands of US-based terrorists groups since 1959.

CONTACTS
Campaign Chairperson: Eleanor Lanigan - 087 2426755
Secretary: Simon McGuinness – 087 2360234

Well done on having Philip Agee visit Galway. I read his book "CIA Diary" some years ago. I'm looking forward to hearing him.
