These U.S.-held political prisoners, in the order they appear above— Fernando González, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernández and René González—were jailed merely for having infiltrated CIA-backed right-wing terrorist commando organizations to monitor and stop attacks on Cuba from U.S. soil.

Individuals and organizations have signed on from 45 countries, from every continent and from virtually every state in the continental U.S.
