Prisoners of Conscience

A PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE IS A political prisoner held behind bars because their political views or actions were used by the capitalist state as a basis for their incarceration. Prisoners of conscience are often framed up on bogus charges that are meant to undercut public support and divert attention away from the political questions that lay at the heart of the case.
