- Shaker Aamer
I have recently been informed about a man named Shaker Aamer. He has been imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay Detention Center in Cuba for almost 12 years. He was arrested because of the way he looked. He’s Saudi Arabian and they think that he had something to do with 9/11. They have no evidence that he had something to do with it so he was cleared for release, but he has yet to be released. This man has been brutally abused for 12 years. He has serious health issues. There have been countless efforts for Shaker Aamer to be released, but that has yet to happen. He’s an innocent man and he’s been tortured because of the way he looks. Racism has taken a big place in history, and still exists today. Our democracy needs to take a stand and stop racism.
