Humankind in Guantanamo – A Conversation with Ex-Detainee Mansoor Adayfi
It’s been over 20 years since Guantanamo Bay began its cruel and unjust operations of abuse. Despite promises by Biden and Obama to close the facility, to this day it holds 36 detainees. On October 17th at 13.00 Room for Discussion will host a conversation with human rights advocate, artist, and former Guantanamo Bay detainee Mansoor Adayfi. Mansoor’s book Don’t Forget Us here is a memoir of his 14 years spent in Guantanamo bay. Being wrongly imprisoned at 19 years old he became known as detainee 441. We will speak with Mansoor about art, religion, and how to stay human in a place meant to break you. The interview will be held on the 17th of October at 13.00, in hybrid format, in the E-hall.
