From Guantánamo to Gaza: Resisting State Violence and Occupation

January 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

From Center for Constitutional Rights: January 2024 marks 22 years of U.S. detention of Muslim men and boys at the Guantánamo Bay prison. Thirty Muslim men remain at the notorious facility, and most have never been charged with a crime despite spending decades behind bars, and none have ever had access to a fair trial. Unjust detention, torture and abuse, the demonization and dehumanization of Muslims under the guise of national security, and impunity are essential pieces of why Guantánamo remains a subject of our continued attention, especially as Guantánamo is how and why such brutal and unlawful practices are replicated around the world.  Join us for a webinar focusing on these threads and the manifestations and connections to state violence, arbitrary detention, and occupation in Iraq and Palestine. Together with formerly incarcerated people, lawyers, and advocates, we will learn, build community, and take action to disrupt the U.S. government’s power to suspend human rights, while elevating our collective demands for justice, accountability, and transformation. Registration and more information here.
