What Defines A Politikal Prisoner?


This definition of “political prisoner” is illuminating. It shows how the hundreds of thousands of activists jailed during the Civil Rights protests were actually political prisoners. And how there are so many political prisoners today in America/American-controlled territory (like Guantanamo). 30-40 years ago most political prisoners were black. Shockingly, many are still in prison, at advanced ages. http://thejerichomovement.com. Nowadays they are more likely to be Muslims, environmentalists or antiwar activists. Wherever oppressed people resist, there are political prisoners. – Marilyn Buck
