To mark 20 years since to the day the first of nearly 780 men were trafficked to the infamous torture centre, Guantanamo Bay, CAGE have today launched the website ‘www.closingguantanamotogether.com’.
The website showcases two decades worth of campaigns, prisoner artwork and poetry, cutting edge research, and moving interviews with former prisoners and their families by CAGE.
As well as listing the remaining prisoners, the website serves as a rallying platform to close Guantanamo bay and enact the 8-point plan to do so as put together and endorsed by former prisoners.
“Closing Guantanamo Together is dedicated to the survivors of Guantanamo. It’s an effort to centre the survivor voice and ensure the campaign to close Guantanamo and free its prisoners remains rooted in the experiences and testimonies of those who lived through what is now known as ‘the gulag of our times’.” – Moazzam Begg
