Guantanamo has become an enduring symbol of injustice in our time.

We’ve been fighting for the detainees held there since the day it opened.

The United States’ detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has held prisoners for over 15 years without charge or trial; most have been tortured and many are extremely isolated and unwell.

President Obama had pledged to close the prison, saying that this potent symbol of War on Terror-era human rights abuses is “not who we are as a country”. But it’s still open, unlawfully holding approximately 41 men. President Trump has now promised to ‘load it up with some bad dudes’.

We led the fight for access to those held at Guantanamo, and were one of the first organizations allowed inside. We have secured freedom for more than 80 men illegally detained – more than any other law firm or NGO. We currently  represent 7 men in the prison and provides legal assistance to many more.  We also provide legal, social and psychological support to former detainees and their families through the ‘Life After Guantanamo’ program, helping them rebuild their lives and live free from official harassment.

#FastForJustice: Day 5

Day 5 coming to an end. That is 120 hours without any food. Just water, and mainly decaf black tea and coffee, though sometimes it had to have caffeine (not a good idea, as it is a diuretic).
