The Guantánamo Files: photos from the book launch, Wednesday 28 November


These photos of the official launch of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison at Bookmarks in central London were taken by photographer Richard Keith Wolff, who took a great interest in the event. Contact him at:

Thanks to everyone who turned up to make it such a successful evening, to Bookmarks and Pluto Press for their support, and, of course, to Moazzam Begg, former Guantánamo detainee and spokesman for Cageprisoners, and Zachary Katznelson, senior counsel of the legal charity Reprieve, who delivered compelling speeches about Guantánamo, and who, with Andy, responded to a barrage of fascinating questions from the audience.
