Close Guantanamo

This ad, calling for the closure of Guantanamo Bay jail, has been published on January 11-07 in The New York Times newspaper. Although, President Bush has signed in Octobor last year the “Military Commissions Act of 2006” that allows the American government to arrest and detain without any accusation or trial, whoever is suspected to be a potential terrorist. The past five years have seen the USA engage in systematic violations of international law. Human rights violations have included:

  • Secret detention
  • Enforced disappearance
  • Torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment
  • Outrages upon personal dignity, including humiliating treatment
  • Denial and restriction of habeas corpus
  • Indefinite detention without charge or trial
  • Prolonged incommunicado detention
  • Arbitrary detention
  • Unfair trial procedures
