The jailer and the jailed
On October 9 at 7 p.m., UC Davis’ Center for the Study of Human Rights in the Americas screens The Road to Guantanamo, with discussion to follow, at the Varsity Theatre, 616 Second Street in Davis. OK, you’re a person of conscience, but still a voice in your head is asking: Why should I spend my Monday night in communal contemplation of the world’s most notorious prison camp? Well, it’s your world. That should be reason enough. A docu-dramatization of testimony from three British nationals who were detained for two years as prisoners of the U.S. military without being charged, The Road to Guantanamo might be one of those films you heard a lot about but never managed to see. Well, haven’t you been wanting to weigh in/spout off? The post-screening discussion will be led by the men’s attorney, Gitanjali Gutierrez. Admission is $10 and includes a copy of Michael Ratner’s book Guantanamo: What the World Should Know. For more information, visit http://humanrights.ucdavis.edu.
