The unbending dignity, truthfulness, and integrity of the five Cubans framed up by the US government and today serving draconian sentences in federal prisons has won them the admiration and respect of prominent figures around the world and thousands of their fellow prisoners as well. Here two who have known them in prison speak out. Also includes accounts of prison life and resistance by Gerardo Hernández and Ramón Labañino, and Elizabeth Palmeiro. Puerto Rican independence fighter Rafael Cancel Miranda, who himself spent more than 27 years in US prisons, pays tribute to the example of the Cuban Five.
