March for Omar Deghayes

Supporters of Omar Deghayes and six other British detainees being held in Guantánamo Bay have called a demonstration to demand that the US authorities release them and shut down its network of secret detention centres. The march will take place on Saturday 21 January in London.

Meanwhile, lawyers for Omar and the other detainees have launched a court challenge aimed at forcing the British government to do more to help free them. Omar’s family came to Britain in the early 1980s as refugees from Libya. His father, a trade union activist and lawyer, was murdered by Colonel Gadaffi’s regime.

Demand justice for the British residents in Guantánamo Bay, Saturday 21 January. Assemble 12 noon, Tothill Street, central London, nearest tube St James’s Park.
