Wrexham: Solidarity with Guantánamo Hunger Strikers

vg | 17.05.2013 10:37 | Guantánamo | Anti-militarism | Repression | Terror War | Wales

Today, 17 May, is the 100th day of the current Guantánamo hunger strike, with most of the 166 remaining prisoners now refusing food, including British resident Shaker Aamer. Like most of the others, he has not been charged with any crime and has been cleared for release, but with no prospect of actually being freed. Aamer has been held at Guantánamo for 11 years and joined the hunger strike in March. Over 30 prisoners are now being brutally force fed. Some are close to death. A global emergency three days of action has been called.

I got up this morning, painted a disposable banner on a roll of wallpaper, made and printed 100 fliers and headed off to town in the morning rush hour.

Once the leaflets were all gone, I left the banner up on the Bradley Rd/Regent St junction. It was still there an hour later when I passed again and will hopefully last all day.
