The Human Face of Indefinite Detention: Shaker Aamer, Guantanamo & the NDAA
April 24, 2012: 6:30PM – 8:30PM at the New School, New York City
Join us for a panel discussion about the violations of human rights currently occurring at the US detention facilities at Guantanamo and at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. UK resident Shaker Aamer has been held without charge or trial for ten years, prompting global outrage and an international campaign for his release. The recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act has further enshrined indefinite detention and the unjust Guantanamo military commissions in US law. Come and learn more about these policies and the actions that lawyers, human rights advocate, and activists are taking to oppose them.
