the orange jump or boilersuits are familiar to anyone that watches news programmes or reads a newspaper online or off. The two men seen here are supporters of specific named Guantanamo prisoners plus one non-Guantanamo prisoner which they and their supporters and families wish to be released from the torture programme being used extra-judicially. They are protesting in London's Parliament square where many demonstrations take place either within the Square or walking past it. Britain's Parliament building is just across the road. The prisoners named on the piece of card held by one of the demonstrators are SHAKER AAMER, AAMED BELBACHA and BRAD MANNING. Update: It's now October 4th 2015 and there have been developments. Brad(ley) Manning is still being held in jail for leaking classified documents to Wikileaks about the inhumane treatment of Guantanamo detainees. While inside a military prison Bradley became Chelsea so now exists in prison as a woman. Her sentence for whistleblowing is 35 years. You can read more about Chelsea Manning here. Shaker Aamer may finally be released this year (2015) after being detained for over thirteen years without a trial nor charges. The then President George Bush or his administration admitted they had no evidence against Mr Aamer.
