The US government opened Guantánamo Bay camp in January 2002 in order to imprison Muslim men without charge or trial. The U.S. military officially acknowledged holding 779 prisoners in the camp, aged between 13 and 87.
Guantanamo has been called “the gulag of our times”, a “stain on US history”, and an “island outside the law”
CAGE is the largest and longest-lasting survivor-led effort to document and organise against the injustices committed at Guantanamo, and close the camp.
Since 2003, CAGE has conducted in-depth interviews with prisoners, families and lawyers, carried out ground-breaking research and advocated for redress in mainstream media, governments and international organisations.
To this day, Guantanamo is still open, and remains a symbol of torture, kidnap and indefinite unjust imprisonment.
