Andy Worthington and Omar Deghayes - Guantanamo Eleven Years On

Andy Worthington and Omar Deghayes - Guantanamo Eleven Years On

Almost eleven years to the day the Bush Administration turned a US military base on the edge of Cuba into a symbol of human rights abuse and injustice Andy Worthington and Omar Deghayes talk about the current situation in Guantanamo Bay. With Obama starting his second term in office he has failed to hold good on his promise of shutting the prison 12 months after he was first elected back in 2008.

Andy and Omar - himself a former Guantanamo detainee - also talk about the campaign to free Shaker Aamer, the last remaining British citizen still held without trial in Guantanamo. There is a growing campaign to pressure the UK government on the status of Shaker Aamer and return him to his family.
