What this is about ...

An unmissable evening with former Guantanamo prisoners. 

Imagine being innocent but locked on an island thousands of miles away from your loved ones…

Imagine learning about the passing of your mother in a blacked out letter… or having a grown-up child you have never met…

For the Muslim men still imprisoned in Guantanamo, this necessitates no imagination at all. It is the nightmare they have been living for the past 21 years.

While all eyes were on Morocco during the 2022 World Cup, CAGE Outreach Director Moazzam Begg had just returned from there after visiting Ahmed and Abdul Latif, two former Guantanamo prisoners. He discovered their extraordinary tales of survival and tremendous resilience in attempting to rebuild their lives. He decided to invite them to share their experiences in a public event, so that the world gets to hear their incredible stories. 

In order to mark Guantanamo’s 21st anniversary, CAGE invites you for what promises to be a fascinating and revealing discussion between ordinary men who faced extraordinary circumstances, and emerged stronger in their faith and resilience.

Join us to:

- Hear the exclusive testimony of Abdul Latif Nasser who spent 20 years in Guantanamo and will speak about his experience for the first time since his release. Being one of the last men released from one of the most secretive places on earth, he will shed light on the hidden realities of Guantanamo.
(He will be joining via zoom) 

- Listen to Ahmed Errachidi, once a key leader of the resistance inside Guantanamo, turned best-selling author and top chef upon his release.
(He will be joining via zoom)

- Learn from Moazzam Begg, CAGE’s practical plan to close Guantanamo once and for all.

Book your free ticket and join us for an unforgettable evening in South London in sha Allah.
