Private Military Companies



Private Military Companies in Service to the Transnational Capitalist Class

Globalization of trade and central banking has propelled private corporations to positions of power and control never before seen in human history. Under advanced capitalism, the structural demands for a return on investment require an unending expansion of centralized capital in the hands of fewer and fewer people. The financial center of global capitalism is so highly concentrated that less than a few thousand people dominate and control $100 trillion of wealth.

The few thousand people controlling global capital amounts to less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s population. They are the transnational capitalist class (TCC), who, as the capitalist elite of the world, dominate nation-states through international trade agreements and transnational state organizations such as the World Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, and the International Monetary Fund.

The TCC communicates their policy requirements through global networks such as the G-7 and G-20, and various nongovernmental policy organizations such as the World Economic Forum, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberger Group. The TCC represents the interests of hundreds of thousands of millionaires and billionaires who comprise the richest people in the top 1 percent of the world’s wealth hierarchy.



The TCC are keenly aware of both their elite status and their increasing vulnerabilities to democracy movements and to unrest from below. The military empire dominated by the US and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) serves to protect TCC investments around the world. Wars, regime changes, and occupations performed in service of empire support investors’ access to natural resources and their speculative advantages in the market place.

When the empire is slow to perform or faced with political resistance, private security firms and private military companies (PMC) increasingly fulfill the TCC’s demands for the protections of their assets. These protection services include personal security for TCC executives and their families, protection of safe residential and work zones, tactical military advisory and training of national police and armed forces, intelligence gathering on democracy movements and opposition groups, weapons acquisitions and weapon systems management, and strike forces for military actions and assassinations.

The expanding crisis of desperate masses/refugees, alienated work forces, and environmental exhaustion means an unlimited opportunity for PMCs to engage in protections services for the global elite.

Estimates are that over $200 billion a year is spent on private security employing some fifteen million people worldwide. G4S is the largest PMC in the world with 625,000 employees spanning five continents in more than 120 countries. Nine of the largest money management firms in the world have holdings in G4S. Some of its more important contractors are the governments of the UK, the US, Israel, and Australia. In the private sector G4S has worked with corporations such as Chrysler, Apple, and Bank of America. In Nigeria, Chevron contracts with G4S for counterinsurgency operations including fast-response mercenaries. G4S undertakes similar operations in South Sudan, and has provided surveillance equipment for checkpoints and prisons in Israel and security for Jewish settlements in Palestine.

Security: The controversial firm G4S has seen a 20 per cent increase in its income from the UK government, raising fears of an over-reliance on a 'private army'

Another private military contractor Constellis Holdings—formerly Blackwater and Triple Canopy—is a leading provider of security, support, and military advisory services to the US government, foreign governments, multinational corporations, and international organizations. Constellis is managed by an all male board of directors including billionaire Red McCombs; John Ashcroft, the former attorney general; retired admiral Bobby Inman; and Jack Quinn, a leading Democratic advisor who served as chief of staff to vice president Al Gore and as counsel to President Clinton.

Hundreds of private military contractors now play an important role in TCC security in the evolving 21st century neo-fascist corporate world. Capital will be free to travel instantly and internationally to anywhere that profits are possible, while nation-states will become little more than population containment zones with increasingly repressive labor controls. For these reasons, PMCs must be understood as a component of neoliberal imperialism that now supplements nation-states’ police powers and could eventually substitute for them.

The trend toward privatization of war is a serious threat to human rights, due process, and democratic transparency and accountability. The US/NATO military empire sets the moral standards for denial of human rights by using pilotless drones to kill civilians without regard for international law in various regions of resistance to empire. Labeling dead civilians as insurgents and terrorists, the complete lack of due process and human rights belies any standard of governmental moral legitimacy. This lack of moral legitimacy in turn sets standards for private military companies to operate with much the same malice in the shadow of the empire.

The globalization of PMC operations alongside transnational capital investment, international trade agreements, and an increasing concentration of wealth in the TCC means that the repressive practices of private security and war will inevitably come home to roost in the US, the European Union, and other first-world nations.



The 99 percent of us without wealth and private police power face the looming threat of overt repression and complete loss of human rights and legal protections. We see signs of this daily with police killings (now close to a hundred per month in the US), warrantless electronic spying, mass incarceration, random traffic checkpoints, airport security/no-fly lists, and Homeland Security compilations of databases on suspected resisters.

Each time we look past the crimes of the empire we lose a portion of our integrity of self. Ignoring repression becomes part of continuing compromise in our daily lives leading to a moral malaise and increased feelings of helplessness. We must stand up and demand democratic transparency and the international enforcement of human rights. Unless we collectively challenge the empire, we face a world that is evolving into a new dark age of neo-feudal totalitarianism unlike any previously known.

The Orlando mass murderer



  Orlando Killer Worked Inside the Global Security System

The Orlando mass murderer, Omar Mateen, worked for G4S, one of the largest private security employers in the world. G4S has some 625,000 employees spanning five continents in more than 120 countries. As a private security company it provides services for both governments as well as corporations. Some of its well-known contractors are with the British Government, the United States, Israel, Australia and many more. G4S providers a range of services in the areas of corrections, policing, and security of important facilities. In the corporate sector it has worked with such well-known companies such as Chrysler, Amtrak, Apple, and the Bank of America.

A statement from G4S, published by The Independent June 12 says that: “We are shocked and saddened by the tragic even that occurred at the Orlando nightclub. We can confirm that Omar Mateen had been employed with G4S since Sept 10 2007. We are cooperating fully with all law enforcement authorities, including the FBI, as they conduct their investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the friends, families, and people affected by this unspeakable tragedy.”


Mateen worked with the company since 2007. G4S provides security personnel for the Department of Homeland Security, US Customs and Border Protection at the US-Mexico border, and helps transport undocumented immigrants from urban areas.

Mass killings like the one in Orlando directly benefit private security firms like G4S by increasing fears and demands for higher security services. Estimates are that over $200 billion is spent on private security globally with higher amounts expected yearly. The industry currently employs some 15 million people worldwide.


                                                                  Omar Mateen

G4S offers security guards, alarms, management and transportation of cash and valuables, prison management, and electronic monitoring of offenders in 120 countries worldwide. They are the second largest private employer in the world. Their annual revenue in 2014 was $10.5 billion. Increasingly G4S operates in “complex environments” and accepts jobs national armies are not trained to do like land mine clearance, and military security in active war zones.

Chevron Oil in Nigeria contracts with G4S for counter insurgency operations that deploy armed groups of fast-response mercenaries both on land and on delta water patrol boats mounted with machine guns. G4S maintains a similar operation in South Sudan. G4S also provides surveillance equipment to checkpoints and prisons in Israel.

G4S has been plagued with problems in the last decade, most noticeably with the botched contract at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. They failed to provide the 10,000 plus trained employees they had promised under contract. Instead G4S had roughly 2,000 people properly trained, with many more getting only a few weeks’ worth of preparation. The result led to the British Military being called in to provide security with some 13,000 troops alongside G4S.

In June of 2014, G4S was accused of violently removing protesters from outside its own offices in London, a claim the company denies, and a few months after that G4S had to pay $100,000 for unlawfully restraining youths in a secure training facility. In 2011, a double amputee was improperly secured in one of G4S’s ambulance services and died when the unsecured wheelchair tipped over backwards as he was being transported to the hospital. It was found that the G4S staff was not sufficiently trained to move patients safely from their homes to hospitals. And as far back as 2004, a 15-year-old died when three G4S employees at Rainsbrook Secure Training Center restrained him. None of the officers were charged in that incident.

G4S is a transnational security company in direct service to the global corporations and the transnational capitalist class. G4S protects capital and assets around the world and is increasingly taking a private military style approach as needed. As a multi-billion-dollar public company major investors come from the financial core of the transnational capitalist class including; Blackrock, UBS, Vanguard, Barclays, State Street, Allianz, J.P. Morgan Chase, Credit Suisse, and FMR. Even the State of California and New York have holdings in G4S. Nine of the thirteen largest most connected money management firms and banks in the world have direct investments holdings in G4S. Omnicom, the largest public relations and propaganda firm in the world, handles media for G4S and undoubtedly is currently in full crisis management mode to protect the company and minimalize links to Omar Mateen.

G4S is a part of neoliberal imperialism that is leading to the substitution of and privatization of state police. Inside G4S’s 625,000 employees are undoubtedly a number of reactionary individuals with extreme racist, homophobic, and xenophobic feelings similar to Omar Mateen. These folks are armed walking time bombs that can individually or collectively unleash disruption and chaos on humans anywhere in the world. The resulting chaos and fear will be used to justify even more demands for private security, including even martial law, all resulting in improved profits for G4S.

Historical Places You Are Not Allowed to Visit



                     Lascaux Caves: A Complex of Caves Famous for Its Paleolithic Cave Paintings (France)

Lascaux Caves is a complex of caves in southwestern France that is famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. They contain 900 of the most perfect surviving examples of Upper Paleolithic art. These paintings are estimated to be 17,300 years old. They primarily consist of images of large animals, most of which are known from fossil evidence to have lived in the area at the time.

The caves, which have been banned to the public since 1963, have been menaced in recent years by a series of unexplained, and only partially controlled, fungal invasions. Any human presence in the caves is regarded as potentially destructive. Normally, they are entered only once a week by one security guard for a few minutes at a time.

In 1979, Lascaux was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list along with other prehistoric sites in the Vézère Valley, France.



                          Poveglia: A Very Small Island Near Venice Suspected of Being Haunted (Italy)

Poveglia is a small island located between Venice and Lido in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy.

For centuries Poveglia has been a refuge, a stronghold, a place of exile, and a dumping ground for the diseased and deceased.

In 1348, the Bubonic Plague arrived in Venice and Poveglia, like many other small islands, became a quarantine colony. Fearing the unbridled spread of the disease, Venice exiled many of its symptom-bearing citizens there. At the island’s center the dead and the dying – who were mistaken for dead bodies – were burned on giant pyres. These fires would burn once more in 1630 when the Black Death again swept through the city.

In the 20th century the island was again used as a quarantine station, but in 1922 the existing buildings were converted into a hospital for the mentally ill. This went on until 1968, when the hospital was closed and the island once again became uninhabited.

Legends surround the island of hauntings by the victims of plague and war, as well as a crazy doctor of the mental institution who supposedly butchered and tortured patients.

Today, the island is closed to locals and tourists. In recent years, Italian construction crews attempted to restore the former hospital building, but unexpectedly stopped without reason.




        The Vatican Secret Archives: The Archives Themselves are Off Limits to Everyone Except a Few People

The Vatican Secret Archives, located in Vatican City, is the central repository for all of the acts promulgated by the Holy See. The entrance to the Archives building is adjacent to the Vatican Library off the Piazza of St. Peter’s. The archives also contain the state papers, correspondence, papal account books, and many other documents which the church has accumulated over the centuries. In the 17th century, under the orders of Pope Paul V, the Secret Archives were separated from the Vatican Library, where scholars had some very limited access to them, and remained absolutely closed to outsiders until 1881, when Pope Leo XIII opened them to researchers, more than a thousand of whom now examine its documents each year.

The use of the word “secret” in the title “Vatican Secret Archives” does not denote the modern meaning of confidentiality. Its meaning is closer to that of the word “private,” indicating that the archives are the Pope’s personal property and do not belong to any particular department of the Roman Curia or the Holy See. The word “secret” was generally used in this sense in phrases such as “secret servants,” “secret cupbearer,” “secret carver,” or “secretary,” much like an esteemed position of honor and regard comparable to a VIP.

In other words, you can view any document you wish because the archives are not secret, despite their name. However, you cannot enter the archive. You must submit your request for a document and it will be supplied to you.

The Vatican Secret Archives have been estimated to contain 52 miles (84 km) of shelving, and there are 35,000 volumes in the selective catalogue alone. The only documents you can’t access are those which are not yet 75 years old (in order to protect governmental and diplomatic information). Indexes are available for people who want to see if a document exists in the archives.



Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion: Due to the Holiness of a Very Important Biblical Object Which is Preserved There, Only a Qualified Monk Has the Privilege of Entering the Temple (Ethiopia)

The Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion is found in Ethiopia, and it is impossible to access because it’s claimed to contain one of the most important biblical objects, the original Ark of the Covenant, which according to tradition came to Ethiopia with Menelik I after he visited his father King Solomon.

Due to the holiness and relevance of the ark, only a specially chosen monk has the privilege of entering the temple, and no one else is allowed to lay eyes on it or even get close.




   The Jiangsu National Security Education Museum: A Spy Museum So Secret that Foreigners are Banned (China)

The Jiangsu National Security Education Museum in China is home to top secret documents about the history of Chinese espionage. There are a range of documents and gadgets dating from 1927, when the Communist Party’s Central Committee espionage department was founded, to the 1980s. There is also a collection of tiny pistols, guns disguised as lipstick, miniature cameras, concealed wiretaps, hollowed-out coins used to conceal documents, and maps hidden in decks of cards.

People are allowed to enter, but they have to be Chinese nationals due to the fact that they don’t want such sensitive spy information to be exposed to foreigners. In other words, you can only access it if you are citizen of the People’s Republic. However, no photography is allowed inside the museum, even if you’re Chinese.




Niihau: An Exotic Hawaiian Island Closed to Most Visitors in Order to Preserve Its Indigenous Culture and Wildlife

Niihau is the seventh largest of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands. This island has no paved roads. There are no stores, no restaurants, no electricity, and no indoor plumbing. On the other hand, Niihau has the only school in Hawaii—and perhaps the only one in the country—that relies entirely on solar power for its electricity.

Elizabeth Sinclair purchased Niihau in 1864 from the Kingdom of Hawaii and private ownership passed on to her descendants, the Robinson family.

In 1915, Sinclair’s grandson, Aubrey Robinson, closed the island to most visitors with the purpose of preserving its indigenous culture and wildlife. Even relatives of the inhabitants could visit only by special permission.

Today, the island is generally off-limits to everyone except relatives of the island’s owners, the natives, U.S. Navy personnel, government officials, and invited guests. There are very rare helicopter tours to the isle so you can wander along one of the beaches, but getting anywhere near the locals is strictly forbidden, giving it the nickname “The Forbidden Isle.”





                                      Pine Gap: Only Area in Australia Designated as “Prohibited”

Pine Gap is the commonly used name for a satellite tracking station approximately 18 kilometres (11 mi) southwest of the town of Alice Springs in the center of Australia which is operated by both Australia and the United States.

The facility consists of a large computer complex with 14 radomes protecting the antennae. It has over 800 employees.

The location is strategically significant because it controls America’s spy satellites as they pass over the third of the globe which includes China, parts of Russia, and Middle East oil fields. Central Australia was chosen because it was too remote for spy ships passing in international waters to intercept the signal.





                  The Negev Nuclear Research Center: A Nuclear Installation Located in the Desert (Israel)

The Negev Nuclear Research Center is an Israeli nuclear installation located in the Negev desert, about thirteen kilometers southeast of the city of Dimona, Israel.

Its construction commenced in 1958 with French assistance, according to the Protocol of Sèvres agreements.

Information about the facility remains highly classified. But in 1986, Mordechai Vanunu, a former technician at Dimona, fled to the United Kingdom and revealed to the media some evidence of Israel’s nuclear program and explained the purpose of each building, also revealing a top-secret underground facility directly below the installation.

In January 2012, media reports indicated that the Israel Atomic Energy Commission had decided to, at least temporarily, shut down the research center’s reactor. The site’s vulnerability to attack from Iran was cited as the main reason for the decision. In October and November 2012, it was reported that Hamas had fired rockets at Dimona (rather Negev Nuclear Research Center), but the facility was not harmed or damaged in any of the attempted strikes.

Of course the airspace over it is closed to all aircraft. They also implement the necessary measures to prevent unauthorized entry, so the area around it is heavily guarded and fenced off.




                                  Ise Grand Shrine: The Holiest and Most Important Shrine in Japan

Ise Grand Shrine in Japan is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the goddess Amaterasu-ōmikami. The Ise Jingu Shrine consists of two main shrines and about 125 additional shrines.

The shrine is one of Shinto’s holiest and most important sites. Access to the site is strictly limited; the only person who can enter is the priest or priestess, who must be a member of the Japanese imperial family. The general public is allowed to see little more than the thatched roofs of the central structures, which are hidden behind four tall wooden fences.
Every twenty years, the two main buildings inside the Ise Jingu Shrine are rebuilt. The shrines that are rebuilt are Naiku, or the “Inner Shrine,” and Geku, or the “Outer Shrine,” and they, as well as other parts of the complex that undergo any rebuilding, are rebuilt according to the original design blueprints from over 1,000 years ago. This rebuilding tradition is part of the Shinto belief in the transience of life and the renewal that follows death. It is also an invaluable way to pass on ancient building techniques from one generation to the next.




                                    Metro-2: Purported Secret Underground Metro System in Russia

Metro-2 in Moscow, Russia is the informal name for a purported secret underground metro system which parallels the public Moscow Metro. The system was supposedly built, or at least started, during the time of Joseph Stalin and was codenamed D-6 by the KGB. It is supposedly still operated by the Main Directorate of Special Programs and the Ministry of Defense.

The length of Metro-2 is rumored to exceed that of the public Metro. It is said to have four lines that lie 50 to 200m deep. It is said to connect the Kremlin with the Federal Security Service (FSB) headquarters, the government airport at Vnukovo-2, and an underground town at Ramenki, in addition to other locations of national importance.

In 1994, the leader of an urban exploration group, the Diggers of the Underground Planet, claimed to have found an entrance to this underground system.

Sadly, all available information is speculative and unsupported by documentation such as photographs. Also, there are narratives told by people who say that they helped build Metro-2, and urban spelunkers claim to have “seen” Metro-2, but there are no explicit “firsthand” accounts.

Happy birthday, Guantánamo! 6


Each Year in January, MatrixLeaks will publish the same article - "Happy birthday, Guantanamo!" - until the cruel cage will not be closed - as Mr. Obama promised in January 2010. 

"I intend to close Guantánamo, and would not give it up. Many times I have repeated that the United States does not conduct torture and I will make sure that indeed be so. I will make every effort to increase America's moral reputation in the world", Barack Obama said during his election campaign, in which, among other things, promised to be one of the first things you will do will be closing the Guantánamo base. Base Guantánamo will be closed to 22. January 2010., believe me."


Already we in 2016., and Barack Obama president of the nearly seven years. Gunatánamo this week have the birthday cake candles. Fourteen years of existence. There is no indication that it will close the base, which thinks about its one hundred and seventy four inmates - um, who do they ask?



The camp for prisoners at Guantanamo was opened in 2002, under the Bush administration, and its purpose is, how then said - keeping al-Qaeds members who are or will one day be accused of terrorism. The intention was to quit and other individuals who are considered risky for the security of the United States. It all happened while they were extremely fresh wounds from the so-called terrorist attacks of September 11, so the American public greeted the project with Bush's approval. The base is a large 116 square kilometers and consists of several camps, which, because of the treatment of prisoners, can be called concentration camps. The most important are Delta and Iguana Camp. The first twenty prisoners arrived at Guantánamo 11. January 2002. Since then, the base marched hundredth person, some were released, some convicted, all tortured and changed forever.



Amnesty International sends the years appeals to the U.S. government, saying the violation of the rights of prisoners, and one of their reports, in 2005 George W. Bush commented, it seems to me that they do some of their decisions based on the world and accusations of prisoners, people who hate America , people who are trained not to tell the truth. Indeed, America is a free country you do not have the right to hate. Why the hate, you ask? Gunatánamo is the best illustration of the tactics of intimidation, torture by the U.S. government applies worldwide. Just drape the flag of democracy and crime can begin. In peace, for freedom!

   As in the cage

It has already been written about the case of Omar Khadra, "child of Guantanamo". Recently, his sister, Zaynab Khadra, gave an interview for the site Cageprisoners.


Zaynab Khadra said, among other things, how to work with Omar first heard in 2006, four years after being caught. After that, her and her family were allowed two phone calls a year, why they had to travel to Ottawa, because the conversation could be done only from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. From the calls of 2009 can be performed via the Red Cross, so now the family is able to hear with Omar even three to four times a year. Zaynab said her brother grew up, his voice is more mature, his dialect is changed, such that the same person, and yet completely different. Omar does not believe in the legal system, the only way to find faith and rare interviews with his family. It acts more powerful than all of us, "said Zaynab.
Numerous other interviews can be found at the above-mentioned website. Cageprisoners is a British non-profit organization founded by former inmates of Guantanamo. On their website you can find personal testimonies, reports and latest news related to Guantánamo. Their goal is to be the voice of those who can not speak.

   Death as a way

When you torture, humiliate, intimidate, offend, and they themselves may be unsure why, when you are about to end power and a better tomorrow eludes you every day, as the only way you might see them - death. By 2008, at Guantanamo were recorded four committed suicide and hundreds of attempts. It is a fact known to the public, and can only guess at the actual figures, which are assumed to be higher. Only in August 2003 there were eight three p.m. suicide attempt, which the Pentagon described as "manipulative behavior". 10 June 2006, three prisoners were found dead. The official statement was that the Pentagon appears to have committed suicide pact. Prison commander Admiral Harry Harris said the reason for suicide could not be despair, because the reasons for the despair and depression inmates had. I tried to kill himself, said Shad Muhammad, of twenty from Pakistan, was captured in Afghanistan in 2001 and sent to Gunatánamo 2002. I tried four times, because we are disgusted by my life. We needed more blankets, but they did not listen. They never listened, "he said. Washington Post reported that documents on the methods of all sorts torture in Gunatánamo - exposure to hot and cold during sleep, bright light, extremely loud music, hard tests.


   Admit it and you will receive medication

Adel El-Gazzar, former prisoner Gunatánama, the base has arrived with injured leg, after twenty to give a long journey from Pakistan. Twenty-five days he spent in what was then Camp X-ray (the camp was established in 2002, later repealed, and the prisoners were transferred to Camp Delta). After these twenty-five days after being rushed to the hospital to his amputated leg. El-Gazzara asked that he cleaned the wound and change dressings every day, as though to avoid amputation, but his request was denied. Wound was opened and forced him to a shower several times a day, and every new contact with water it was very painful. One day is spent crying in pain. There was a doctor with painkillers. I'll give you a drug, and the pain will go away for ten minutes, you just have to first sign a confession that you are a member of al-Qaeda, he said. El-Gazzara has refused to sign a confession. Shortly after his leg was amputated. During his stay in the database, even thirteen prisoners amputated leg. He says that the problem was not in wounds, and which were not great, but the inadequate medical treatment for which he came to amputation. Despite the pain the prisoners were able to sleep only at certain times and certain number of hours. If they violate the rules, hit them in the head, they took blankets, denied food, and threatened with further abuse.
Adel El-Gazzara after eight years was released from Gunatánamo and sent to Slovakia, the first thing I did was that I cried like a baby. I was really, really happy to leave this awful place, but also sad because my brothers who remained there. I wondered how I'm going to start a new life in an unfamiliar country, with an uncertain future. Prisoners in Gunatánamo my brothers, with them, I've spent more years than with his own wife and children. We suffered together under the same conditions. We are one big family, and I am sorry that I left them on the site. You know, it sounds strange - but Gunatánamo world outside is cold, cold place. There are, even in suffering, were together, side by side. Outside, everyone looks at their job, nobody cares for others.



   The future?

Obviously not enough sad that it closed. Announced the relocation of prisoners in long-Thomson Correctional Center in Illionis. However, on 30 April, 2010th year, the base is closed. Another new year prisoners were greeted with the good old Gitmo, no reason to celebrate. They are one hundred and seventy four pending, they should not move, they need freedom, they want to return to their homes from which they were drawn because they are dark and worship Allah. On their face bonded with a label "terrorist ", they are to blame for all the woes of the great American people on behalf of that with them you can handle whatever the big ones will. Nine years ago, before the eyes of the entire world, with prisoners be treated as the biggest vermin, scum who should be removed from this otherwise vibrant planet. Muslims are guilty!

They hang up first, so they are tried. As the Wild West. Just as the Wild West were both good cowboys, brave fighters who would proudly rode into the sunset.







Guantanamo Bay - The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a US military prison located in Cuba. It was established in January 2002 by the Bush Administration to held, without charge or trial, detainees captured all over the world as part of the War on Terror. Notorious for its abuses and denial of due process, it is widely recognised as “the Gulag of our time”.

780 men, all Muslim and aged from 13 to 89, have been detained there outside any legal framework. The US authorities refused to apply the Geneva conventions protecting the rights of the prisoners of war. Instead, they were labelled ‘enemy combatants’ even though many of them were not captured on any battlefield.

Initially portrayed as “die hard terrorists”, US data shows that 92% of the detainees were not regarded as Al Qaeda fighters by the US government.

658 detainees have been released from Guantanamo Bay after years of detention without charge or trial. Out of the 122 remaining detainees, 54 have been cleared for release and 35 have been designated for ‘indefinite detention’ but cannot be charged with a crime due to the lack of evidence. Nine detainees have passed away while in custody at Guantanamo Bay.

I hope that I would not write about this inhumanity who looks like that is from the 14th century!!!
