Homeland Guantanamos

Juanaforweb1Breakthrough uses videos, video-games, and other multimedia approaches in an attempt to bring immigrtaion and related human rights abuses to national attention.  Breakthrough's latest campaign is on inhumane immigrant detention centers: Homeland Guantanamos (www.homelandgitmo.com). On the site, you are the journalist and your editor assigns you to go undercover in an immigrant detention center to find out what happened to Boubacar Bah who died in detention in 2007, while exposing inhumane detention conditions. There's a tribute wall dedicated to the 87 people that have died in detention, video stories with people that have been detained along with an FAQ and Discussion Guide. The link above will take you to video stories that are in the site from people that were detained, audio clips, etc.

If you really want to witness "inhumane" detention and "human rights abuses," I recommend you visit Syria, or Egypt or Pakistan, or Venezuela and even (God Forbid!) Mexico.

Hi,

Please do take the time to go to the site and through the experience to learn what is going on behind these walls... there are shocking human rights violations occuring. Pregnant women detained days before birth and shackled during labor, HIV+ detainees denied medicine, families in detention with young children for years... that's just a few of the many stories.
