The Global Struggle Against Torture: Guantanamo Bay, Bagram and beyond Joint press conference by Amnesty International and Reprieve
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL - Diary Note - 18 November 2005

Amnesty International and Reprieve will hold a press conference on Friday 18 November in London to announce the biggest ever gathering of former "war on terror" detainees who are coming together over the weekend to condemn an increasingly globalised network of torture.

Amnesty International's Secretary General, Irene Khan and Reprieve's Legal Director Clive Stafford Smith will show how a subversive operation of secret detentions, renditions, "disappearances" and diplomatic assurances has fuelled torture and undermined security.

Former detainees from around the world and international legal and medical experts will highlight the brutal effects on individuals and the blatant illegality of such practices.

When: Friday 18 November, 10am (10.00 GMT)

Where: Human Rights Action Centre, Amnesty International UK, 17-25 New Inn Yard (Shoreditch), London EC2
