Orange for Justice

Today is Friday, 11 January 2008.

On this date in 2002, the first “batch” of prisoners arrived at USA/USE concentration camp Guantanamo Bay.

The ACLU and others, including MoB, ask that folks wear orange, that universal jumpsuit colour, in protest of the systematic denial of basic human and legal rights to the inmates of CC Guantanamo.

Before anyone takes me to task for the use of the term: modern concentration camps were invented by the Brits during the Boer War. Even in Nazi Germany, concentration camps were different from extermination camps. In the former, death was “accidental”; in the latter, intentional.

Not that there’s any ethical difference.

Abolish all kidnapping and torture.
