CLOSE GITMO Gallery w/RSS Feed

All three presidental candidates, five ex-Secretaries of state, the current Secretary of State, the Secretary for Defense, the former Sec. Gen of the U.N. and the Sec. Gen of the U.N. have all called to Close Guantánamo - so we've built a gallery for them. There's an RSS feed in the room, so if it should happen, your avatar will be the first to know.

Gallery for "DIRTY WARS" audio

On April 26th, 2007, PEN American Center and the ACLU co-sponsored "Dirty Wars," an evening of readings at Joe's Pub during the PEN World Voices Festival. We've posted them in our gallery space.

Actors Daoud Heidami (left) and Daniel Oreskes and author Mark Danner reenacted the Combatant Status Review Tribunal (CSRT) of one of Guantánamo's "high-value" detainees, Mustafa Ait Idr.
Francine Prose, President of PEN American Center, read from emails released to the ACLU under the Freedom of Information Act, containing correspondence from FBI agents visiting the prison at Guántanamo Bay.

The full set of readings are available as mp3 or podcasts on the following websites:
