Release Guantanamo’s Child

JUST signed the petition prepared by Avaaz.org for the release of Omar Khadr, a child who has been held in Guantanamo Bay for eight years. Usually  children that are forced into conflicts around the world are treated in rehabilitation programmes.

The US is launching a new military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay and the first person to be put on trial will be a Canadian, Omar Khadr  who was only 15 years old when he was captured in Afghanistan.  Senior officials at the White House, Justice Department and the Pentagon want President Obama to offer a plea bargain and release him immediately but powerful military forces want a rapid show trial.
