Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s quite timely to look back at this video by Amnesty International and Riz Ahmed. Of course many people imprisoned by the United States and United Kingdom under the auspices of the ‘War’ on Terror were entirely innocent. Yet many people are still prepared to dismiss torture, despite the experiences of people like Binyam Mohamed – a British national who underwent extraordinary rendition and was tortured over a period of years. Denying the humanity of other human beings is wrong for any reason. That way lies another Holocaust.
