Emergency Demonstration Called by Liberty

Emergency Demonstration

Breaking the Spider's Web
· End torture flights
· Properly investigate the allegations


United States Embassy, Grosvenor Square, London, W1
Sunday 25th June. 12 noon until 2pm

Please wear black - Liberty's No Torture No Compromise t-shirt if possible.

Liberty is demanding an independent inquiry into UK assistance with CIA "torture flights" in light of the damning Council of Europe report released on the 7th June. The report concludes that CIA flights carrying terror suspects likely to face torture have been given access to UK airspace and airports. It states that there is a "spider's web" of rendition flights spun across the globe by the CIA.

Since November 2005, Liberty has warned the Government that the UK will breach domestic and international law if CIA ?extraordinary rendition? flights have been allowed to land and re-fuel in Britain. In response to the new findings, Liberty and Reprieve are holding an emergency demonstration to demand an end to torture flights on 25 June, the United Nations Day Against Torture.

Shirt for me, please?

I am just astounded at this stuff. I feel really powerless to stop it. When did America start running gulags?

When did America start running gulags?

When they set up detainment camps at Guantánamo Bay Naval Base, I think.

I feel really powerless to stop it.

Same here; due to living in The Grim North™, I can't even go on demos.

Well, that's what it seemed like to me, that we started openly going into the Soviet repression mode after 9 11. Do you feel like it wasn't happening earlier? I'd find it cheering if it were true.

And I live in the heart of the Great Beast, but I do really feel like demonstrations are generally useless. I'm proud of the people in Olympia who were protesting sending materiel to Iraq. I just don't think it really does any good at all, and I don't know how to change things.
