The U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but 20 percent of the world’s prisoners. The “land of the free” is the most highly incarcerated country on the planet. It also has the largest number of political prisoners and is one of the worst offenders of the human rights of prisoners, especially political prisoners.

The struggle to free all political prisoners is just as urgent now as it ever was.
