Please join CCR, Witness Against Torture (WAT), the Peace Poets, and allies for a book launch and performance on the eve of the 16th anniversary of the opening of the prison at Guantanamo Bay. There is a Man Under that Hood sets the words of Luke Nephew’s (Peace Poets) remarkable poem to photographs of anti-torture demonstrations taken or curated by Justin Norman (WAT).  The afterword is written by CCR Senior Staff Attorney Omar Farah.

The Peace Poets will perform pieces from current human rights struggles. UK author Andy Worthington will address the state of Guantanamo in the era of Trump and CCR Advocacy Program Manager Aliya Hana Hussain will share the ways that art and storytelling have uplifted the stories of prisoners and kept the spotlight on Guantanamo through the years. Together, we will celebrate our ongoing work to end indefinite detention and torture and close the prison.
