The prison at Guantanamo, now open almost 15 years, remains a living symbol of U.S. torture and human rights abuses. The fascist Trump has promised to keep it open and to expand the use of torture — waterboarding and worse.
On January 13, Revolution Books will host an evening with Andy Worthington, the British journalist and author who has relentlessly exposed the crimes against humanity being committed by the U.S. government at Guantanamo. He has introduced the world to the stories of the men who have been imprisoned there — most of whom have never been charged, let alone tried for any crime — and he’s a leader in the international battle to close this notorious prison. Andy will speak on what has gone on there over these long 15 years, and what can be expected under Trump if he and Pence are allowed to come to power and bring in the fascist regime they are promising the world.Buy tickets/get more info now
