My Cuba Libre: Bringing Fidel Castro to Justice
On January 1, 1959, nine-year-old George Fowler was awakened in his ancestral home by the sound of gunshots as Fidel Castro’s army approached Havana, Cuba. His family fled to the United States to start new lives as Castro established a brutal regime in their beloved country.

Bringing Fidel Castro to Justice
278 pp. Story Merchant
As chief legal counsel for the Cuban American National Foundation, Fowler has dedicated his life to the cause of Cuban freedom.
My Cuba Libre is the very personal story of his lifelong battle to remove the dictator from power and bring democracy to his homeland.
Fowler exposes the monstrous actions of the Communist Party of Cuba and makes a firm case for indicting Castro for crimes against humanity. Fowler also provides a first-hand account of events like the Elián González case, the Brothers to the Rescue shoot down, and Cuban embargo negotiations.
With boldness and courage, My Cuba Libre attacks the status quo that has allowed Castro to remain on the world stage—and makes a powerful argument for immediate change.
“I write to raise awareness of our struggle, to convince the world to take action. Fidel Castro cannot be allowed to spend his final years in luxury and power. Whoever becomes his successor after his death will only continue his legacy of bloodshed, cruelty, and hate. We must act now to bring freedom to the people of Cuba.”
