20 years ago, the United States opened a detention camp at the Guatánamo Bay Naval Base on the east coast of Cuba.

Over the course of two decades, the US tortured hundreds of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay without charge or trial.

Two decades later, Guantánamo Bay is still in operation. The architects of the War on Terror walk free, while the whistleblowers have been sent to prison.

On 25 February, the Belmarsh Tribunal is coming to New York City. Inspired by the Russell-Sartre Tribunals of the late 1960s, which put the US government on trial for its war crimes in Vietnam, the Belmarsh Tribunal will expose the crimes of the so-called War on Terror 20 years after the first prisoners were brought to Guantánamo Bay — and call for Assange’s freedom.

At the People’s Forum in New York City, we will convene legal experts, UN representatives, whistleblowers, journalists, and many others to investigate and expose the crimes of the so-called War on Terror, to seek justice for its victims, and to demand the closure of the concentration camp at Guantánamo Bay.

In partnership with: The People’s Forum, The Progressive International, DiEM25, the Courage Foundation, DSA International Committee, The Intercept, People’s Dispatch and the International People’s Assembly
