Brothers! Sisters! Supporters and Family of Imam Jamil Al-Amin – Peace to you All!
As salaam alaikum!
My mission tonight, given to me by Sis. Pam Africa, will be simple. I call it facing facts.
Is it a fact that many of these men were subjected to torture and base humiliations?
Is it a fact that those who committed these acts of torture – violations of criminal, military and international law – were given blanket immunity for these acts?
Is it a fact that these events happened both in Guantanamo – and abroad – in so-called ‘black sites’?
Is it a fact that Guantanamo is still open – today – as we speak?
Isn’t it a fact that all these things are true?
That is the government, as it exists today, imperial, torturous, acting with complete impunity.
If you agree with these statements, you must also agree that the government is engaged in daily criminality – today.
Who can know these things – and not protest it with all their power?
My message is brief – but hopefully effective.
Fight for the health of Imam Jamil Al-Amin – and fight for his freedom!
For freedom is LIFE!
