11th January 2012 marks the 11th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay. CagePrisoners hosted a press conference to mark this occasion, bringing together former detainees to share their experiences and bring the conditions of the camp back onto the agenda.  As Victoria Brittain commented these men very rarely speak about themselves and despite their release as Bisher stated, they are forever reminded of the pain as they reflect on those left behind in Guantanamo.

No More Secrets Tour: Bradford

The No More Secrets nationwide tour kicked off in Bradford at the weekend attracting more than 200 people who attended a fundraising dinner and premiere of the CagePrisoners documentary Spies, Lies & Libya. Opened by the local Respect MP George Galloway, other speakers included CagePrisoners patron Yvonne Ridley and Libyan lawyer and former Guantanamo detainee Omar Deghayes. Deghayes highlighted the abuse and alienation faced by Libyan dissidents opposing the Gaddafi regime who were "locked up and silenced" by Tony Blair's government as it cut lucrative oil deals with the former tyrant. He also said how "ironic it is that some of those who were put on control orders in the UK are now helping to form the new Libyan government while others held is high security prisons without trial or charge actually provided protection as armed bodyguards for visiting diplomats and politicians including Hillary Clinton and David Cameron during their recent visits."

Last week, when I cross-posted an article written for the 10th anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo by my friend Todd Pierce, I also noted that when I visited the US in January to campaign for the closure of Guantánamo Bay, I was so busy that I did not have time to cross-post other articles of interest that were published at the time, and added, “In the hope of keeping alive some of that spirit of awareness about the ongoing injustice of Guantánamo that flickered briefly to life around the anniversary, I’m planning to cross-post some of these articles.”
