2018: The end of Guantánamo

By January 10, 2018 No Comments

Time to Charge or Release

On the 16th anniversary of Guantánamo’s opening, we have one simple call: Guantánamo should operate like any other prison – the detainees should be charged or released.

Guantánamo has become an enduring symbol of injustice in our time. It stands for torture, abuse and indefinite detention without charge or trial. A total of 779 prisoners have been held there – and 16 years on it remains open with 41 men still being detained.

To mark this grim anniversary, we are launching a global campaign to close Guantánamo for good, and bring you a collection of stories from those who have actually been there – the detainees, both former and current, and the Reprieve lawyers who are fighting for them.
