TRALEE: Guantanamo Orange Jumpsuit Protest

category kerry | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Wednesday January 09, 2008 22:33author by marie - amnesty international Report this post to the editors

Amnesty International (Tralee) stages protest

To mark the sixth anniversary of the first transfers of detainees to Guantánamo Bay, Amnesty International Tralee Branch is taking its part
in **Worldwide** events, rallies and meetings to seek the immediate closure of the detention centre and an end to all illegal detentions.

In Tralee you will find a lone participant dressed in an ORANGE JUMPSUIT with a white facemask.
Each 'statue' will highlight the issue of solitary confinement, and identify a specific individual in Guantánamo.

Other AI members will collect signatures on a petition to be delivered to the US Ambassador in Ireland.

VENUE: The Square, Tralee, Saturday 12th January @ 2PM

CLOSE GUANTANAMO!

Hundreds of people remain detained in Guantánamo, without charge and with little hope of a fair trial.

Despite international outrage and the US authorities' own stated wish to close the camp, Guantánamo is still holding detainees illegally.

Hundreds languish in cruel, inhuman and degrading conditions, including detainees who have been cleared for release.

Detainees continue to be transferred to the camp from secret CIA custody and elsewhere, confirming Guantánamo's role at the heart of the US network of unlawful detention.

Guantánamo is a symbol of injustice and abuse. It must be closed down.

Amnesty International is urging the US government to close Guantánamo in a transparent manner which fully respects the human rights of those detained and brings to fair trial all those who are accused of recognizable crimes.
