David Hicks: a case of abandoned civil rights
After five years of incarceration at Guantanamo Bay without trial, it is
increasingly clear that David Hicks has committed no serious crime and
that he is no threat. Yet, he is being held in a prison camp, often in
solitary confinement, subjected to endless interrogations and physical
and mental abuse to try and break his resistance to a guilty plea. Hicks
is now in such a state that he cannot even bear to talk to his father on
the phone.

David Hicks's plea: 'Get me out of here'
