Gitmo Lawyer Speaks Out

David H. Remes is an American lawyer who has served as a pro bono attorney for several of the prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay prison. He was involved in litigation surrounding the Detainees Treatment Act of 2005, which denied prisoners the ability to submit habeas corpus petitions. In this interview with WeAreChange, Remes gives us a look at the current situation in gitmo, the start of the hunger strike and some of the personal stories of the detainees he represented.

    Great work and very thoughtful interview. Luke has really come a long way with WAC.

  2. That’s some serious journalism right there. Hats off to you Luke! Keep up the good work. If these people held in Guantanamo bay can have their rights taken away we all have our rights taken away.
