Guantanamo Anniversary

This past week (Thursday 1/11) marked five years since the inception of the BushCo policy of imprisoning "enemy combatants" at Guantanamo Bay. According to press reports there are presently more than 400 prisoners being kept there, mostly without the most basic legal recourse. This policy, like much of the administration strategy, is a condemnable revision of international law that is self-defeating. Amnesty International quite rightly orchestrated a set of protests to call attention to the anniversary. The following images (all lifted from the BBC web page where you also can find a set of relevant reports) depict protests against the practice in Ankara, Paris, London, Budapest and Berlin.
