Katoomba showing of the film The Road to Guantanamo
Presented by Green Left Weekly and the Blue Mountains Socialist Alliance
Monday April 23, 7.15 pm, Red Room (Tris Elies nightclub), Katoomba.
Socialist Alliance/Green Left Weekly is proud to screen The Road to Guantanamo.
David Hicks’ ``plea bargain’’ was made after years of inhumane and brutal treatment in George Bush’s Guantanamo Bay concentration camp. Hicks saw it as his only hope for freedom. The US military’s ``kangaroo court’’ is a travesty of justice. Hick’s must be unconditionally freed when he returns home!
Part drama, part documentary, The Road to Guantanamo tells the story of how three young English men holidaying in Pakistan were seized by pro-US warlords in Afghanistan and illegally and unjustly imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay. They were finally freed after the public outcry at home forced the British government to gain their release. This is in stark contrast to the actions of the Howard government in Australia, which abandoned David Hicks.
Monday, April 23, 7.15 pm. Treis Elies Red Room, Katoomba (next to train station).
