Free Shaker Aamer
"The illegal US military prison has held more than 800 prisoners - most of them released without charge or trial. 171 prisoners remain, without prospect of release.
Over a dozen British nationals and residents have been illegally imprisoned at Guantánamo. Two remain: Shaker Aamer, a UK resident with a British family in south London, including a son he has never met; and Ahmed Belbacha, an Algerian national from Bournemouth. Both men were cleared for release in 2007.
President Obama promised to close Guantánamo but has not. Now prisoners may be held indefinitely without evidence. The vast majority have never faced any charges."
Shaker Aamer is a Saudi Arabian citizen and the last British resident currently held in the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba. He was arrested in Afghanistan in January 2002 and as of today, Aamer has been held at Guantánamo for 9 years, 9 months and 19 days. In this time fears over Mr Aamer's health have grown as he has participated in hunger strikes to protest his detention and spent much of his time held in solitary confinement. After a visit in November 2011 Clive Stafford Smith said: "I do not think it is stretching matters to say that he is gradually dying in Guantanamo Bay,".
