WE URGENTLY NEED TO RAISE £5,000 - PLEASE HELP FUND A PARLIAMENTARY DELEGATION TO WASHINGTON AND ENSURE THAT SHAKER AAMER IS BROUGHT HOME FROM GUANTANAMO TO HIS FAMILY IN LONDON BEFORE ITS TOO LATE !

 

SHAKER AAMER IS A BRITISH RESIDENT WHO, WHILST CARRYING OUT CHARITY WORK IN AFGHANISTAN, WAS ABDUCTED, SOLD FOR A BOUNTY TO THE UNITED STATES AND RENDITIONED TO THE GUANTANAMO PRISON CAMP. HE HAS NOW BEEN HELD, OFTEN IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, WITHOUT CHARGE OR TRIAL FOR 13 YEARS. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM AND DESPITE TWICE BEING CLEARED FOR RELEASE BY THE U.S. AUTHORITIES, SHAKER AAMER REMAINS IN DETENTION WITH ALL HIS HUMAN RIGHTS DENIED.   AS A RESULT OF HIS ILL-TREATMENT IN CAPTIVITY, SHAKER AAMER NOW HAS SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS SO THAT HIS RELEASE BECOMES MORE URGENT AS EACH DAY PASSES.

 

THE SHAKER AAMER PARLIAMENTARY GROUP OF MPs HAS THEREFORE DECIDED TO SEND A DELEGATION OF MPs TO WASHINGTON SOON AFTER THE ELECTION, TO MEET WITH INDIVIDUALS, OFFICIALS AND ORGANISATIONS WHO MAY BE ABLE TO INFLUENCE EVENTS AND KEEP PRESIDENT OBAMA TO HIS PROMISE TO PRIORITISE SHAKER AAMER’S CASE AND ENSURE HIS RELEASE AS A MATTER OF THE UTMOST URGENCY. THE SAVE SHAKER AAMER CAMPAIGN HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF QUICKLY RAISING £5,000 TO COVER THE DELEGATION’S EXPENSES   -   PLEASE HELP BRING SHAKER HOME TO HIS FAMILY BY GIVING WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD TO THIS APPEAL !     THANK YOU.
