THE CAUSE

 

Cageprisoners are a human rights organisation that exists solely to raise awareness of the plight of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other detainees held as part of the War on Terror.

 

They serve the brothers and sisters who have been severely tested. Who have been isolated from their families, caged like animals in the searing tropical heat, forcefully shaven and stripped naked, humiliated by their oppressors. But also people who Allah has declared that He loves, people Allah has singled out to purify from their sins like fire purifies steel.

 

 

THE PRICE

      Students: £25

      6 or more tickets £40

      Individual tickets: £50

      Table of 10: £350

 

 

THE EVENT

 

The dinner will have the largest gathering of ex-Guantanamo detainees from all around Europe to date.

You will be listening to the likes of Moazzam Begg and Imam Anwar Al Awlaki, in his first live public address since his release from prison, less than a year ago. You will have the opportunity to take away with you the letters that they wrote in Guantanamo, previously unseen sketches conceived in the cages of Camp Delta, bid for books and DVDs signed by these inspirational brothers.

These are people who have learnt a lesson you cannot learn on a weekend seminar or from a book. They have had every hope and assistance stripped away from them until they tasted the sweetness of abandoning all reliance on anything other that Allah


If seeing these brothers and meeting them does not fill your heart with ambition and jealousy at the favour Allah has bestowed upon them with the rank He has given them – what else will?

 

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO

 

“Should you look inside my heart, my eyes have developed wounds by weeping” Zeinab Khatoon, mother of one of Pakistan’s disappeared.

This is a fundraising dinner, which means that every penny raised goes straight back to helping the prisoners.

That’s means the price of your ticket is Sadaqah, pure and simple. You will be giving the sadaqah in Ramadan, the recipients of the sadaqa are working to free and help the oppressed. The Prophet, SAW, was asked, ‘Which type of charity is best?’ He responded, “Charity done during Ramadan.”
