The prison camp at Guantánamo Bay remains open more than a decade after the first detainee was transferred. Of the men still held 12 were in the original group first taken there.
In the intervening ten years, the US detention facility has made headlines because of allegations of torture, enforced disappearances and illegal detention.
President Obama pledged to close Guantánamo by 22 January 2010 but, with the camp now in its eleventh year, the disregard for human rights continues.
Bring Shaker home from Guantánamo
When Shaker Aamer was detained by Afghan forces in November 2001 he was a healthy man in his early 30s who lived with his wife and four children in Britain. Shaker is now 44-years-old and has spent nearly 11 years behind bars at the notorious prison camp in Guantánamo Bay. He is riddled with arthritis and other health issues, the result - he and his lawyers claim - of years of brutal torture and solitary confinement, as well as inadequate medical care. He has endured all of this despite being cleared for release in 2007 and never being charged, tried or convicted of any criminal offence.
On taking office in 2009 President Obama pledged to close Guantánamo by 2010. But it is now 2013 - eleven years since the first prisoners were first transferred to the prison cam - and the world is still living with this insult to justice. It's time for Obama to come good on his promise.

Poems from Guantánamo
This extraordinary anthology of poems is written by men imprisoned in Guantánamo Bay. Since 2002, at least 775 men have been held in the US detention centre. They wrote their poems with little expectation of ever reaching an audience beyond a small circle of their fellow prisoners.
The first poems were scratched on to styrofoam cups and passed from cell to cell. Many were destroyed by prison guards.
