Caged in the USA: What Happens after Extradition?

12 Oct

Five men held in British prisons collectively for over 40 years without charge fought valiantly against extradition to the US. Now they face the likelihood of a new ordeal in a ‘Supermax’ prison, confinement under some of the harshest conditions known in the western world.


In a unique event, CagePrisoners brings together three distinct yet united voices to inform the public of the harrowing conditions and harsh treatment that prisoners in the United States endure and the lasting impact it leaves on survivors and their families. Guest speakers will include:

Robert King, one of the ‘Angola 3’, who survived 29 excruciating years of brutality in US prisons as a political prisoner for a crime he didn’t commit;

Omar Deghayes a Britisher of Libyan descent who endured six years of abuse and torture in the notorious Guantanamo Bay prison, without charge;

Hamja Ahsan, the younger brother of Talha Ahsan, one of five men extradited to the US after being jailed for six years in the UK without charge.

Also present will be Victoria Brittain, moderating the experience, and Lee Jasper, Black British activist and former Senior Policy Advisor on Equalities to the Mayor of London.
