It would seem that the real story of Sean Kirtley's plight has been picked up by the national press (Independent) we hope this will raise the profile of Sean's case and have already been told by Seans legal team that this should help his appeal no end

 

 

 

Please write a letter to them to keep this story in the forefront! Say thanks for the article!
newseditor@independent.co.uk

That's what we need for Austrian activists - media which spread the info about the cause. I'm going to write to Independent asking for article about the cause in Austria.

there is mail to Foreign Desk: foreigneditor@independent.co.uk

Two years ago, G8 pledged to double aid to Africa--but despite their promises, aid from the G8 has actually gone down, and 20,000 children every day are still dying preventable deaths. Let's show how many of us
want the rich world to keep its promises !!

President Bush! - Close Guantanamo prison!
    - Part 2
 





Last week, nearly 50,000 of us from 160 countries signed Avaaz's call to close Guantanamo prison - making it the largest petition in the world opposing President Bush's assault on international law. Next week, we will run the petition in major US newspapers. To be counted and to see a map of which countries have the most signatures, click here:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/close_guantanamo/?cl=5866956

Guantanamo's former commander General Jay Hood has admitted, "Sometimes we just didn't get the right folks." Without trials, innocent people get caught in the mix. And let's face it, even guilty people have the right to a trial and to know what crimes they are accused of. Meanwhile, regimes around the world are using Guantanamo to excuse their own human rights abuses.

But now we have a chance for progress. Last week, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates finally said Guantanamo should be closed. President Bush's advisors are split down the middle - and a global outcry could tip the balance and push Bush to close Guantanamo forever.

Please sign the petition calling on the US government to close Guantanamo and for its inmates to be tried in a legitimate court or set free:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/close_guantanamo

Next week, we'll run ads featuring the petition in Washington, DC newspapers read by top Bush officials. It's time to show them that citizens from every country on earth want this injustice to end.
