The Road to Guantanamo. A documentary: See behind the veil.

On December 10, 1948 The General assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal declaration of Human Rights the full text of which appears in the following pages if you follow the link below.  Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories"

  • Article 5.
No one shall e subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or unishment
  • Article 6.
Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
  • Article 7.
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
  • Article8.
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or y law.
  • Article 9.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

These are just a few articles to separate Society from mad anarchic. The United State Government has endowed itself mother of Liberty, Justice and Freedom for All.

Then what happen in Guantanamo:

Watching documentaries of WWII of the camps, we asked our selves how can the German people can have been blind and unaware of the atrocities perpetrated to the Jews. Well when a government is left unchecked and feed our fears with well targeted propaganda, when our patriotism is left in question, when the medias are censured, we the people are hurdled like sheep toward a mass lobotomy where our commune sense has been extracted and like zombies we accept the word of our leaders talking of weapon of mass destruction wich never existed, engaging in a war which we should have never been evolved.

Since 2003, Osama Bin Laden is still roaming free, North Korea has the power to create it own Nuclear bomb, Pakistan and Afghanistan kill's our young men and women witch weapons, trainings our intelligence has provided.

The Road to Guantanamo is one pieces of the puzzle showing us how we have lost our ways. We are a Democratic country, our constitution is the best civil constitution of the world, our government does not torture, humiliate, insult prisoner...   one is innocent until proven guilty...The truth is out ... we have seen the pictures... the Bush administration has been ousted with there billions of war profiteering while we are today loosing our jobs, homes, dreams...
Mr. Bush says of Guantanamo prisoners:  " The only thing I know for certain is that these are ad people, and we look forward to working closely with the Blair government to deal with the issue", in this documentary the American military may be the film's great villain, but Mr Winterbottom  director of the movie makes it clear that the Blair government is complicit.
The human rights abuses at Guantanamo bay highlights widespread criticism by Amnesty International, who referred to the prison as "the gulag"  world leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who stated that "An institution like Guantanamo in its present form cannot and must not exist in the long term" 

And still, no one has yet to be accountable...

I hope they can enforce this. Torture is a disgrace and a blight on the human race.
