Guantánamo - Torture - Crimes We Are All Concerned
Marie is a French student in a political sciences school currently interning for the summer at World Can’t Wait's National Office in New York.
The purpose of this article is not to find an answer for each question I had or wondered. Neither is it to explain all the issues of Guantánamo, but rather to show what people really think and to speak up for what I believe is fair and that which represents my values.
A week ago, the director of World Can’t Wait, Debra Sweet, and I talked about my trip to Washington, DC for the Witness Against Torture protest demanding, “Close Guantánamo.” We decided I would be free to write anything I wanted.
I then reflected it would be interesting to interview activists and people involved in organizations against torture, crimes and Guantánamo Bay, as well as American citizens and foreign tourists to collect a maximum of varied opinions.
Before writing this article, I thought I would be as neutral as possible and play the “journalist” card as my school has taught me.
But how can I remain neutral when talking about torture, discrimination, crimes and injustice?
