Many families around the world are spending this Christmas without their loved ones who are innocently in prison. They have been arrested for standing up for human rights and democracy and for drawing attention to abuses in the country. The International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) recalls the fate of political prisoners and prisoners of faith who are imprisoned under inhumane conditions in countries such as Cuba, Iran, China, Turkey, Belarus or Russia during the Christmas holidays and demands their immediate release.
