CCR First Wednesdays: Connecting Guantanamo and domestic criminal injustices

June 3, 2015
Guantánamo Bay prison is one of the most notorious examples of post-9/11, U.S. human rights violations, but it has roots here at home. Join us on June 3rd, for CCR’s First Wednesdays, where CCR Senior Staff Attorney Pardiss Kebriaei will discuss the question of whether Guantánamo will close, how it might close, and surface connections to government abuses within the U.S. criminal justice system in the “war on terror.”

WHAT: CCR First Wednesday discussion with CCR Senior Staff Attorney Pardiss Kebriaei: connecting Gitmo and domestic criminal injustices. Followed by Q&A.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00 p.m. (program begins at 6:30)
WHERE: Von Bar, 3 Bleecker Street (B/D/F/M to Broadway-Lafayette; 6 to Bleecker)
RSVP: Space is limited, RSVP is recommended. Click here to RSVP.

For more background on this topic, read an article that Pardiss wrote for The Atlantic last year, The Torture That Flourishes From Gitmo to an American Supermax, about two CCR clients, Ghaleb Al-Bihani and Fahad Hashmi.
