Cageprisoners Presents:

TWO SIDES - ONE STORY:
GUANTANAMO FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE WIRE



A national tour to mark seven years of unlawful detention, abuse and torture



January 11th 2009 - 4th February 2009


 SAMI AL HAJ
 (Ex Guantanamo Detainee and Aljazeera Journalist)


CHRISTOPHER ARENDT
 (Ex-Guantanamo Guard)


MOAZZAM BEGG
(Ex-Guantanamo Detainee, Spokesman for Cageprisoners)


Guantanamo Bay stands as one of the most potent symbols of unlawful detention in the world today. The detention of suspected terrorists at the prison camps has evoked emotion from those seeking its closure and continuance.


Cageprisoners presents Two Sides – One Story­, a tour of the UK that brings those on opposite sides of wire at Guantanamo together for the first time.


Christopher Arendt, a former guard at the base has agreed to speak about his experiences in detaining suspected terrorists and bring new insights into the way the US administration carried out policies against them.


Also, for the first time the detained Al Jazeera journalist Sami El Haj will be speaking with Moazzam Begg as they both reflect on life at the prison on the opposite side to Chris.


This unique tour is a historic moment in the continued War on Terror and will be launched on 11th January 2009, exactly seven years after the first transfers to Guantanamo Bay.

That actually looks really interesting and a good way to bring people in and get the word out. I like how they're not being held in Mosques but in universities and different centers by various human rights organizations.
