Guantanamo Unclassified

Having overcome some technical difficulties, we can now post this much-requested YouTube video on Adel Hamad, another innocent man languishing in Guantánamo.

Help us close Guantanamo!

Just saw Amnesty International have launched another cool campaign, a virtual trip to Guantanamo asking for it to be closed. I just joined and it's fun.

Give it a try, it's for a good cause and it takes only 5 minutes. Postin' some of the info from their site:

"Where can you find bearded ladies, parachuting mermaids and Siamese pirate twins on the web? On the way to Guántanamo!

Amnesty International has launched an animated online petition asking for people to join our flotilla travelling all the way to Guantánamo. We have already got thousands of people on the voyage with us. The travellers are taking part in AI's latest online campaign to draw more people to our campaign against the US government to close Guantánamo.

This online petition will run until 26 June, International day for the Protection of Victims of Torture.

Help us pass the message! Please forward the link to as many people as you can ( and ask them to sign up to the campaign and forward it to their friends and colleagues. People can also link to the flotilla from their website or blog. Find banners and buttons in English and Spanish here: Together we can Close Guantánamo. Let's give it a good try!

Joining only takes a minute and it is a lot of fun. And while you're there, have a look at how your friends and colleagues here have designed their outfits, done their hair and chosen their mode of transport -- its a hoot! Have you always wanted a beard but were afraid to grow one? Now's your chance!

The campaign is gathering momentum and is creating quite a splash. Now we need your help to pass on the message. Can we count on you to keep up the momentum and ensure we get this awful detention site closed for good?

Thanks, everyone!

Amnesty International"

so there you are, ladies, go grow your beard on the way to Guantánamo! :)

(the mermaid with a beard riding a sea dragon, that's me!)
