This event is already claimed by International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group
Please attend our June 23 online international media conference/public event to expose and demand an end to one of the gravest human rights violations currently perpetrated by the Canadian government.Canada's Guantanamo Bay – where Canadian Muslims are off-shored beyond reach of law & rights, respect & dignity – is located in North Eastern Syria. Forty-four Canadians – 8 men, 13 women and 23 children – are illegally detained there under conditions the United Nations and many human rights groups describe as akin to torture.The Canadian government is violating their Charter Rights by refusing to repatriate them. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, The International Committee of the Red Cross, the United Nations, the US State Department, Save the Children and, in a rare show of cross-party unanimity, a Canadian Parliamentary Committee, have all called for repatriation.A stellar line-up of human rights advocates will appear at this conference, including:- Moazzam Begg, former Guantanamo Bay detainee and outreach director of Cage, UK- Nafeesa Mohammed, attorney and former Senator of Trinidad & Tobago, suing her government for repatriation as well- Clive Stafford Smith, human rights lawyer, who was one of the first lawyers into Guantanamo 20 years ago- Monia Mazigh, author and academic- Elizabeth May, Green Party MP- Taha Ghayyur, Justice for All- Natascha Mikkelsen, Repatriate the Children, Denmark- Sally Lane, author and mother of Jack Letts, detainee in Syria- Tim McSorley, International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group- Matthew Behrens, Stop Canadian Involvement in Torture- Heather McPherson, NDP MP and Foreign Affairs Critic
