Binyam Mohamed is a 30 year old Ethiopian national who lived in Ladbroke Grove for over seven years. He worked at the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre. While travelling in 2002, he was kidnapped in Pakistan and sold to the American military. As a victim of extraordinary rendition, he was flown to Morocco where he was appallingly tortured for 18 months. He was then transferred to Afghanistan, and on to Guantánamo Bay in September 2004. After six and a half years of illegal detention, Binyam is facing trial by a military commission. The evidence against him was extracted by torture. Come and learn about the plight of a local man and see what action you can take.
In the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Binyam should be with his local community. Come and join us for an evening of reflection on his plight followed by IFTAR (post-fast meal).
