  • Privacy, Torture, Speech

    Those are just 3 off the top of my head. But prisoners were tortured heavily which is a violation, they had no privacy, another violation, and many were tortured for making rather peaceful objections, like hunger strikes. Many were also taken without trial of any evidence that they had even committed a crime, a violation of the Geneva conventions

  • Yes, Guantanmo Bay.

    Is violating the right to a fair trial. Since Gitmo is a territory from the U.S, they have the right to go to a trial like the rest of Americans go. Even when Gitmo is in Cuba, the cuban governement has no say in what happens inside the base. This should be changed.

  • Yes

    Guantanamo Bay is a direct violation of all of the so called human rights according to the constitution. Unlawful combatant as a term is defined by Supreme Court in the Quinn case in 1942 is a spy who passes through enemy lines in a time of war.
    This link (www.juridicainternational.eu/index.php?id=12632) gives detailed specific conditions for the treatment of every person captured in an occupied territory regardless of their status as a law combatant or a civilian. The Geneva Conventions (1949) and the Additional Protocols (1977) specifically deal with all persons captured in armed conflicts regardless of their military standing. The Geneva Conventions and the Additional Protocols were signed by the United States. According to these protocols, being labeled an unlawful combatant does not negate the rights of the accused under the fourth convention. I strongly recommend everyone on the opposing side of this question go to the link and read the information.
    Further to the detention of the prisoners at Gitmo, they were there and held under suspicion and were never granted an impartial trial to determine their guilt. Accused is not equal to guilty regardless of how emotionally charge the atmosphere may be. Mjgranger the (United States is the most generous and benevolent country in the world)
    What is that based on?
    Nowhere is it written that any person gives up their rights as a result of their actions. They certainly don’t give up their rights based on an accusation.
    Sanitizing the word torture and replacing it with “extreme interrogation” does not make it less of a torture. We can re-label anything you want to sanitize it. Let’s remove the word rape and call it extreme sex thoroughly enjoyed by one willing participant.
    A review by the Obama administration found that probably only two dozen of the detainees could be successfully prosecuted in a federal court, because of weak or little available evidence. Yet contrary to his campaign promises to close the Guantanamo Bay prison facility it remains open. The violation of human rights continues.

  • Yes it does violate human rights

    There was no fair trial. No evidence against the detainees. Innocent detainees. They are locked up without any reason and are suffering. Their rights honour and dignity are denied! The rule of law states that everyone is equal and deserves rights. These detainees are not even criminals yet the universal human rights and geneva convention are exempted for them. This goes against the very reason and purpose of equality and human rights

  • Guantanamo Bay is a human rights violation.

    The detention camp is a human rights violation because of the torturous treatment of prisoners by the employees during interrogation; some of the methods that are classified as torturous are waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and sensory deprivation and have been protested over by humanitarian organizations, including Amnesty International. The torturous treatment of detainees during interrogation proves that the Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a human rights violation because it violates the fifth article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which bans the use of torture and torturous treatment or punishment. Guantanamo Bay is a human rights violation because the detention camp also holds some innocent people in prison without good reason, according to Wilkerson, a former Bush administration official, who said he learned that the U.S. realized many detainees held at the camp were innocent, but still held them in hope for a little intelligence by communicating with military commanders. The placement of detainees without good reason violates human rights because it goes against the 9th amendment, which states that, “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.” In summary, the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay is a violation of human rights.

  • Fuck yes close it

  • Human Rights Extend to All

    The 8th amendment stated that the American government will not inflict cruel and unusual punishment. It does not state only for citizens or on U.S. soil it states that the Government WILL NOT. This extends to all people including prisoners of war and terrorists. These are people too and no matter the atrocities they have committed they are still entitled to HUMAN rights.

  • No...Regulations Make Sure that rights are not violated

    One might argue that threats who are interrogated/held here are subjected to extreme interrogation methods, but those who are brought here have done something extreme enough to require this sort of treatment. our government has the responsibility to maintain safety for US citizens and if detaining threats to Guantanamo Bay accomplishes this, than this measure should be acceptable. Those taken here should be treated the same as criminals in the continental US.

  • Not our citizens means not our rights.

    Yes this might be a violation of the constitution because this nation is built around the constitution, but after thousands of people died in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 america was scared. In Guantanamo people were considered terrorists and there is no chance you can take with terrorists. Why would they get our rights when they aren’t american citizens, meaning they don’t have the same rights.

  • The prisoners in Guantanamo Bay are technically defined as enemy combatants.

    According to the definition of the Geneva Convention, the prisoners are enemy combatants - which need not apply to your country's laws and liberties, nor the Geneva Convention's standards for prisoners of war. Therefore, they can be treated as the country sees fit, and we treat them as they are - terrorists.

  • Geneva Conventions & Law of Land Warfare Support Gitmo

    The detainees at Gitmo are unlawful combatants, who broke Geneva Conventions and Law of Land Warfare during the Global War on Terror, therefore are legally not entitled to any rights. However, because the United States is the most generous and benevolent country in the world, we decided to treat all detainees within the spirit of the Conventions, which allows us to treat them with dignity and respect, and hold them lawfully until the end of hostilities. Keep in mind that the Geneva Conventions and Law of Land Warfare were written to PROTECT innocent civilians during war, not to protect those who would PRETEND to be civilians in order to kill them and lawful combatants.
