Audio: Moazzam Begg and Andy Worthington talk about Guantánamo

11.12.07

Thanks to Chris at Sheffield Indymedia, the talks at the Stop Islamophobia Society’s meeting at Sheffield University last night, by released Guantánamo detainee Moazzam Begg, and by Andy Worthington, author of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison, are available as MP3s on the Indymedia website.

The meeting, to mark International Human Rights Day, was entitled, “Human Rights in the War on Terror,” and was also supported by the Sheffield Guantánamo Campaign and Cageprisoners. Talks by Shazia Rashid, one of the organizers of the well-attended event, and by a speaker from the students’ Amnesty International group, are also available, as is the Question and Answer session, which I missed, unfortunately, as I had to catch a train back to London.
