Guantanamo Families to Fight Back
The families of British residents detained at Guantanamo plan to take their fight to the US--with the help of the ACLU:
Politicians, campaigners and lawyers joined relatives of the prisoners to launch the Guantanamo Human Rights Commission at the House of Commons. A delegation will travel to Washington in March to lobby politicians and raise awareness of the detainees' plight with the backing of the American Civil Liberties Union.
There are 9 Briton and 3 British residents among the 660 detainees at Camp Delta. Another 11 are from a variety of European countries, including France, Sweden and Germany.
We also want to keep mentioning that there are three 13 to 15 year olds being held at the camp, as well as an unknown number of 16 to 18 year olds.
