- London Guantánamo Campaign, 14 June 2012
The London Guantánamo Campaign  regrets the decision of the American Supreme Court, on 11 June, to reject petitions from 7 Guantánamo Bay prisoners , held without charge or trial for over a decade, to challenge the basis of their detention. This comes in the same week as the 797th anniversary of the Magna Carta, on Friday 15 June, conferring the rights to a fair trial and habeas corpus , among others, for almost the past eight centuries. The court gave no reason for its decision to overturn this basic right it had earlier upheld.

12-06-2012 02:28Almost all Australians have no sympathy for those they perceive as people smugglers. I do not blame Australians for that because they don’t know the real story about why they end up in Australian waters. I believe Australians know only what journalists tell them through the media.
