Freedom Is a Big Word: After Guantanamo

View on the Pragda STREAM site

Guantánamo, then what? After 13 years, Mohammed, a 38-year-old Palestinian, is released from the notorious detention camp, where he was starved, tortured, and humiliated. Under this regime, he was given a choice: to stay in Guantanamo or start a new life in Uruguay, the only country that opened its doors to the detainee. There, he would get a home and welfare money for two years, then he would be on his own. Mohammed has a second chance to start a new life of freedom in an unknown place. But “freedom” is a big word with a very complex meaning.
