Guantanamo prisoners still exist

This report by Amnesty reminds us that several hundred people are still in unlawful detention in Guantanamo Bay.

While the US Government continue to use human rights abuses as their justification for invading or threatening various middle eastern countries they continue to deprive these detainees of their human rights.

Surely by now they have either amassed evidence against each of these people or they have not.

If they have they should take them to court.

If not they should release them.

And our Prime Minister doesn't even appear interested in the 9 British residents that are there. He should hang his head in shame.

Indeed, this despite the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust giving its "centenary visionaries" award money to Clive Stafford-Smith whose "innovative idea" was to "close down Guantanamo Bay" (like doh! who hadn't thought of that before) instead of to me and my Community Land Trusts project...:p
