“They chose five distant points for us to serve our unjust sentences. . . . But nothing could stop the Five from marching together with our people and our supporters the world over in the long battle for freedom.” —Antonio Guerrero

Five Cuban revolutionaries, framed up by the U.S. government in 1998, spent up to 16 years as part of the U.S. working class behind bars. Each reached out to fellow prisoners with respect, solidarity, and through their own example—and won respect and support in return. 

What prepared the Cuban Five to act as each did? Above all, it was Cuba’s socialist revolution, whose class character and values their conduct exemplifies. With understanding, objectivity and humor, in this 2015 interview they talk about U.S. capitalist society and its “justice” system. And about the future of the Cuban Revolution.

Includes 40 photos from their years in prison and since the Cuban Five won their freedom and returned to Cuba.

Editorial Reviews

"…[T]his informative and compelling account will prove to be a much appreciated contribution to personal, community, and academic library collections -- especially in view of the recent rapprochement between America and Cuba…" —Midwest Book Review." …[T]he Pathfinder collection brings forward the perspectives of the Cuban Five themselves and elucidates their period in prison during the 2000s - would serve as a good starting point for those wishing to research related themes, and will certainly be of interest to a broad audience.” —Pluto Journals.
