Contributors included Andy Worthington who spoke about how courts in DC have watered down the Habeus Corpus rights which the Supreme Court said detainees were entitled to. As a result the only detainees to leave Gitmo in the last 13 months have been in coffins, despite the fact that over half the detained have been cleared for release. Special mention of Shaker Amer, the last British resident still being helf.
Pardiss Kebriaei of the Center for Constitutional Rights spoke on how rendition and indefinite detention have been replaced by murder by drones, many taking place outside of war zones and in violation of US and International Law.
Almerindo Ojeda of UC Davis, who runs the university’s Guantánamo Testimonials Project spoke about how the US adminstrations have attempted to alter the discourse in order to manufacture consent for these ongoing war cimes.
David Rovics songs were also played and are here for your enjoyment.
