January 11, 2012

Democracy Now! featured Professor Ramzi Kassem in its story about the 10th anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo. Prof. Kassem, who serves as counsel to some Guantánamo detainees, spoke about the hunger strike and peaceful protests that some of the prisoners have launched to mark the anniversary.

Prof. Kassem directs the Immigrant & Refugee Rights Clinic and supervises the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project, which primarily aims to address the unmet legal needs of Muslim, Arab, South Asian, and other communities in the New York City area that are particularly affected by national security and counter-terrorism policies and practices.
