With the release of a number of Wiki-leaked documents on Guantanamo Bay recently providing evidence that the majority of detainees were innocent, statements had been extracted under torture and that children and the elderly with Dementia were amongst those held, pressure on President Obama to close the facility once and for all is mounting.
Witness to Guantanamo is another strike in the battle against injustice and is a must see for all Muslims and people interested in Guantanamo.
The website is part of a project founded by Professor Honigsberg, an American law professor who began teaching about the War on Terror shortly after September 11th. The questions raised by the class led him to visit Guantanamo and he authored a number of articles and a book on the subject. Following his experiences with inmates and prisoners at the facility and in response to the Public’s desire for information, Professor Honigsberg felt compelled to set up the Witness to Guantanamo project. The model, based on Spielberg’s response to Holocaust denial in which accounts of Holocaust survivors were filmed, aims to create an archive of the prisoner’s accounts for wider research and teaching.
