We marked 22 Years of Injustice

Thursday 11th January shamefully marked 22 years since the first detainees were transferred in sub-human conditions to Guantanamo. 30 men still remain in detention. Over half of these men have been cleared for release. Others have been subjected to unfair trials. That makes five presidential administrations, three of them promising to finally close Guantanamo, yet still it sits there making hypocrites of us all.

The UK Guantanamo Network marked the day with a demonstration, marching from Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square and hearing speeches by Apsana Begum MP, journalist and campaigner Andy Worthington, Lise Rossi of Amnesty International and others.
