Katie Gallagher, Leili Kashani, Pardiss Kebriaei, Andy Worthington & Others TBA

Andy Worthington and attorneys and advocates from the Center for Constitutional Rights and Witness Against Torture will discuss the importance of WikiLeaks, attempts to extradite Julian Assange to the U.S., the dangerous isolation of Bradley Manning, revelations about Guantánamo and U.S. interference to suppress torture investigations in Germany and Spain, and the significance of other stories not covered by Wikileaks — in particular, the circumstances surrounding the deaths of three prisoners at Guantánamo in June 2006. This January 11, 2011 marks the beginning of the 10th year of indefinite detention at the U.S. prison at Guantánamo.
