Venue: Kuumba Centre, 20-23 Hepburn Road (off Stokes Croft), Bristol, BS2 8UB

A unique opportunity to hear from an ex-guard and ex-detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

Bristol Stop The War Coalition & Bristol Amnesty International are presenting the Bristol date on this CagePrisoners national tour of the UK that brings those on opposite sides of the wire at Guantanamo Bay together for the first time.



Christopher Arendt, a former guard at the base has agreed to speak
about his experiences in detaining suspected terrorists and bring new
insights into the way the US administration carried out policies
against them.

Also for the first time the detained Al Jazeera journalist Sami Al Haj will be speaking with Moazzam Begg, as both reflect on life at the prison on the opposite side to Chris.

The unique tour is a historic moment in the continued War on Terror and will be launched exactly seven years after the first transfers to Guantanamo Bay.

If you are able to distribute any flyers for the meeting please email
