Ryan Gattis with Amnesty at Edinburgh International Book Festival

Shaker Aamer arrived at Guantánamo Bay in 2002. Since then, 779 men have been detained there but only 7 have been convicted. Shaker is the last remaining former British resident at the prison camp, despite having been cleared for release, and has spent over 11 years behind bars without access to his family. Today the work of Shaker and other detainees is read by: Ryan Gattis and M G Harris.
