London January 11th

Trafalgar Square. 1 PA System. 800 dvds. 800 flyers. 9 new people. 20 people total. If you live in London join our meetup group and get involved!

After the street action some of us went to listen to an Ex-Guantanamo Bay guard and two former detainees speak at Friends Meeting House addressing an audience of nearly 500 people. Christopher Arendt, the first guard to speak publicly, discussed his experiences in Guantanamo and how he left the army and joined Iraq Veterans Against the War. He was joined by former detainees Jaralla Al-Marri and Moazzam Begg. Al-Marri just six months ago was shackled and caged in Guantanamo Bay and his brother remains the only “enemy combatant” imprisoned in the USA. We gave dvds to people as they were leaving.
