Description/Abstract of your Event: 

More than seven years after Obama promised to close the torture camp at GuantГЎnamo, will it either remain open on the piece of occupied territory in Cuba or become в??GuantГЎnamo North?в?ќ

What are the implications on the legality of indefinite detention if prisoners are held within U.S. borders without charge? It raises questions as to whether they would ever be charged or tried. Would they be tried in military commissions or in federal courts? Why should men who have been tortured be tried or even held any longer? Attorneys and activists in the struggle to close GuantГЎnamo discuss and debate these issues.
