Guantanamo letter-writing campaigns

Please Write to the Remaining Prisoners in Guantánamo in Obama’s Last Month in Office

12.12.16

Please support my work! I’m currently trying to raise $3000 (£2400) to support my writing and campaigning on Guantánamo into the new year.   Twice a year, since 2010, I’ve asked those who oppose the ongoing existence of Guantánamo to write to the prisoners still held there, to let them — and the US authorities […]

Write to the Guantánamo Prisoners in President Obama’s Last Year in Office

4.3.16

Please support my work! Every six months or so, I ask people to write to the prisoners in Guantánamo, to let them — and the US authorities — know that they have not been forgotten. In President Obama’s last year in office, there seems to be some hope that — finally — he will fulfil […]

Write to the Guantánamo Prisoners, Don’t Let Them Be Forgotten

7.7.15

Every six months, I ask people to write to the prisoners in Guantánamo, to let them — and the US authorities — know that they have not been forgotten. The letter-writing campaign was started five years ago by two Facebook friends, Shahrina J. Ahmed and Mahfuja Bint Ammu, and it has been repeated every six […]

Please Write to the Prisoners in Guantánamo, Let Them Know They Have Not Been Forgotten

2.2.15

Every six months, I ask people to write to the prisoners in Guantánamo, to let them — and the US authorities — know that they have not been forgotten. The letter-writing campaign was started four and a half years ago by two Facebook friends, Shahrina J. Ahmed and Mahfuja Bint Ammu, and it has been […]

For Ramadan, Please Write to the Prisoners in Guantánamo, Forgotten Again

1.7.14

Every six months, I ask people to write to the prisoners in Guantánamo, to let them — and the US authorities — know that they have not been forgotten. The letter-writing campaign was started four years ago by two Facebook friends, Shahrina J. Ahmed and Mahfuja Bint Ammu, and it has been repeated every six […]

On the 12th Anniversary of the Opening of Guantánamo, Please Write to the Prisoners

10.1.14

Every six months, I put out a call for people to write to the prisoners in Guantánamo, to let them know that they have not been forgotten, and to let the US authorities know that people are watching what they do at Guantánamo. The letter-writing campaign was started three years ago by two Facebook friends, […]

For Ramadan, Please Write to the Hunger Striking Prisoners at Guantánamo

14.7.13

Every six months, I urge readers to send letters to the prisoners in Guantánamo, and, as this is the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which began July 8, there is no better time to write to the 166 men still held, the majority of whom have been on a hunger strike for over five months, […]

Please Write to the Forgotten Prisoners in Guantánamo on the 11th Anniversary of the Opening of the Prison

10.1.13

Friday January 11 is the 11th anniversary of the opening of the Bush administration’s “war on terror” prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, an ongoing legal black hole, and an experimental prison for holding Muslim men and boys without rights, and subjecting them to torture and other forms of coercion and abuse, and medical and psychological […]

For Ramadan, Write to the Forgotten Prisoners in Guantánamo

22.7.12

Friday was the start of the holy month of Ramadan, and it seems to me that, for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, there is no better time to send a message of support to the remaining 168 prisoners in America’s reviled prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. This is a campaign initiated two years ago by […]

Write to the Forgotten Prisoners in Guantánamo – for the 10th Anniversary of the Prison’s Opening on January 11, 2012

9.12.11

A year and a half ago, two Facebook friends, Shahrina J. Ahmed and Mahfuja Bint Ammu, drew on my research about Guantánamo for a letter-writing campaign, in which they asked their friends and others on Facebook to volunteer to write to each of the remaining prisoners in Guantánamo. Shahrina announced the letter-writing campaign via a […]
