Trafalgar Square silent vigil (D. Viesnik)
Earlier in the day, a letter addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron signed by 75 MPs, MEPS, councillors and campaigners, including representatives of many NGOs, was delivered by hand to No. 10 Downing Street by a delegation from the London Guantánamo Campaign and Peacestrike.
Signatories to the letter included Guantánamo survivor Bisher Al-Rawi, Green MP Caroline Lucas, Labour MP John McDonnell, Baroness Sarah Ludford MEP (Lib Dem), Jean Lambert MEP (Green), Lindsey German (Stop the War Coalition), Kate Hudson (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament), Bruce Kent (Pax Christi), Walter Wolfgang (Labour CND) and journalists Victoria Brittain and Andy Worthington. In addition, there were messages of support for the vigil from Labour MPs Jeremy Corbyn and Karen Buck, and Green London Assembly Members Cllr Jenny Jones and Cllr Darren Johnson. A shorter version of the letter was published in both the print and online editions of the Guardian newspaper:
