Datelines UC Davis
April 23, 2010
Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman is due back on campus for another program dealing with the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.
Guantanamo: A Conversation This Side of the Wire is scheduled from 8 to 10 p.m. April 30. Organizers said Goodman and former Guantanamo guard Brandon Neely will be in 123 Sciences Lecture Hall, in a video conference with one-time Guantanamo prisoner Omar Deghayes (who will be in Brighton, England) — and the public is invited to sit in. (Deghayes is new to the program, replacing former prisoner Sami Elhaj, who had been announced earlier as a participant.)
The Center for the Study of Human Rights in the Americas, the program’s sponsor, is charging $10 general admission and $5 in advance for UC Davis students, as a benefit on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the center’s Guantanamo Testimonials Project.
Organizers said seating is limited. Advance tickets are available at the Freeborn Hall box office and the Davis Farmers Market, as well as online (tickets.com) and by telephone, (530) 752-1915.
