"Solitary Prisoner" action

The 11th of January 2008 is the 6th anniversary of the opening of
Guantanamo Bay detention centre.

As part of Amnesty's ongoing effort to CLOSE GUANTANAMO we are
calling on activists to take part in our "Solitary Prisoner" action.

The Actions will be conducted around the country beginning Saturday,
5 January running until Thursday, 10 January.

Teams of two people will be placed randomly around the country, one
dressed in an orange jumpsuit with white mask and the case of an
individual detainee in laminate form on their back.

The second person will be standing separate to the Solitary Prisoner
with the Framework for Ending Illegal Detentions petition for people
to sign.

All that is required for this action are 2 people and a couple of
hours and will take place in your own community.

If you are interested in carrying out this action please contact, as
soon as possible, the Amnesty Campaigns Team on
activismassistant@amnesty.ie  Or ring the office on (01) 863.8300 and
ask for Kieran Clifford.
