Forthcoming events – London

1st April: From the London Guantánamo Campaign:

“Shut Down Guantánamo!” demonstration (in solidarity with Bradley Manning)

12-1pm: US Embassy, Grosvenor Square, London, W1A 1AE (nearest tube: Bond Street/Marble Arch)

1.15-2.15pm: Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park, W1 (nearest tube: Marble Arch)

Join us on April Fool’s Day as we protest the foolishness of arbitrary detention and the practice of torture.

Please note the change to the time and place of the monthly demonstration – we will be holding a lunchtime demonstration outside the US Embassy and then on the pavement outside Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park.

As well as continuing to demand the immediate release and return to the UK of Shaker Aamer, and justice for the prisoners still held at Guantánamo, Bagram and similar prisons, we will be holding this month’s demonstration in solidarity with dual US-UK national Private Bradley Manning, a 23-year old intelligence analyst in the US army, accused of leaking confidential data to the Wikileaks website. Mr Manning, who went to school in Wales, was arrested in Iraq last year and currently faces several dozen charges, including “assisting the enemy”, which carries the death penalty. The data he is alleged to have leaked, including film, has exposed the US military’s actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantánamo Bay and elsewhere. A British national, the UK government has so far chosen largely to ignore his plight and the abuse he is facing on a daily basis at a US military jail.

Please join us for a part of or all of the demonstration.

The London Guantánamo Campaign

The London Guantánamo Campaign

If you cannot join the demonstration, we ask you to contact your MP and urge them to sign the following EDMs: 1093 on Guantánamo Bay and 1624 on the treatment of Bradley Manning:

17th April: London Catholic Worker are putting on a solidarity event with speakers to include Gareth Peirce together with anti-war artists, activists, speakers and performers from Iraq, Afghanistan, US, Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

Speakers announced for London #March20 event

We’re really pleased to announce that the following speakers will be joining us outside the US Embassy on Grosvenor Square in London this Sunday:

Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner
Bruce Kent, Vice-President CND
Loz Kaye, Pirate Party UK
Ben Griffin, former SAS soldier and Iraq War resistor
Ciaron O’Reilly, London Catholic Worker
Naomi Colvin, UK Friends of Bradley Manning
Current pupils from Tasker Milward School in Haverfordwest

Peter Tatchell has provided us with the following statement:

“The regime to which Bradley Manning is being subjected by the US authorities amounts to torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, which is illegal under the UN Convention Against Torture and under US law. Given that Manning is a British citizen, the UK government should be demanding an end to the abuse he is suffering.”

We’re also delighted to have pupils from Bradley’s former school coming to Grosvenor Square to join us. London is a marathon journey from Pembrokeshire yet these teenage girls feel so strongly about what is happening to Bradley that they are giving up their weekend to come and address the crowd.

Please join us there. Our facebook event page is here and we’ll be meeting on Grosvenor Square at 2pm. The nearest tube stations are Marble Arch and Bond Street.
