Actors, artists, and activists join The Center for Constitutional Rights, Theaters Against War, The Center for Humanities and The Center for Place, Culture and Politics at CUNY Graduate Center, and Educators for Civil Liberties for a panel discussion with the families of US terror suspects. Family members will tell their own stories of the human and civil rights violations here in US courts and prisons – stories of the inhumane conditions of confinement terror suspects face pre-trial and post-conviction; of over-reaching material support charges often accompanied by flimsy evidence; of years of intrusive and often illegal government surveillance; of FBI informants disrupting mosques and instigating conspiracies.
Featured speakers will include family members of the Newburgh Four, Fahad Hashmi, Lynne Stewart, the Holy Land Five, Tarek Mehanna, the Fort Dix Five, Ahmed Abu-Ali, and Shifa Sadequee among others.
