The vigil is on the strand as normal and the social event afterwards will now be held at Highgate Newtown Community Centre, 25 Bertram Street, London N19 5DQ.

Don't forget the free cinema at rampART this evening (thursday 11th, 8pm)...

This Is Camp X-Ray (Dec 2004, 73 minutes)

Punchy film documenting a week long, fully functional internment camp that was set
up in the middle of Manchester three years ago, from its inception, construction,
operation and aftermath. It features interviews with individuals who took part as
guards and prisoners. There is reaction from local residents and passers-by. The
film concludes with an emotional interview with the sisters of Jamal Al-Harith, a
Manchester resident who was eventually released from Guantanamo Bay after 3 years of
imprisonment without charge.

SOCPA - THE MOVIE (2007, 60 mins)

This film looks at the how the increased repression in this country is being played
out in legislation designed to rid Parliament Square of Brian Haw, the lone
protestor who has camped outside parliament since 2001 in full and defiant sight of
the politicians who had voted to support the so-called 'war on terror'. The film
follows Haw’s successful battle to remain, but also shows the enormous creativity
and tenacity of other campaigners appalled at the idea that we have to ask for
permission to protest near Parliament.
