Release Shaker Aamer and Let Him Return Home

He's been held in Guantánamo for years. Like other inmates, he faces no charges. He's been "cleared for release to Saudi Arabia", but that's not what he wants. He wants to go home to his family in the United Kingdom. As citizens of the world, we demand that Shaker Aamer be released and allowed to return to his family in the UK. The safety of the free Shaker Aamer, his family, and others around him should be protected. After living in an unimaginable hell for so many years, let this man go free and see his child that he's never met (was born the day Shaker was transferred to Guantánamo). No more solitary confinemnt. No more abuse. Let him go back to his family. We will achieve this goal through peaceful means. According to Amnesty International, "Indefinite detention is a human rights violation: the US must either charge Aamer with a crime or release him." If he isn't going to be charged with anything, then he should be free to go home. Thank you.
