You Don’t Like the Truth | 4 Days in Guantanamo

The documentary that gave rise to the Free Omar Khadr campaign

We are delighted to announce that the directors Patricio Henriquez and Luc Côté have given us the rights to broadcast the prize-winning documentary “You Don’t Like the Truth | 4 Days in Guantanamo” on our website.

Watching the footage of the 16-year-old Omar in Guantanamo changed lives and led to the launch of our Free Omar campaign, as you can read in the personal stories of some of our members.
