Syed Talha Ahsan, Babar Ahmad, Gary McKinnon and Richard O’Dwyer face imminent extradition to the USA as early as 10 July.
The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) have produced a film called 'Extradition' written and directed by Turab Shah to raise awareness of the injustice these men are experiencing.
Talha Ahsan, for example, was born in London in 1979. He is a graduate with first class honours. He has been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, like Gary McKinnon. In 2006 he was arrested at the request of the United States. He has been in maximum-security prison here ever since, without charge or trial, resisting extradition to solitary confinement in the United States. This is a country he has never been to and where he has neither friends nor relations. He faces imminent extradition after the European court refused to block it. He has never been arrested or questioned by British police.
You are invited to attend a special viewing of this 25 minute film at All Hallows on the Wall, near Liverpool Street Station on Friday 6th July from 6:30pm-8:30pm. RSVP to Stephen Sizer (07970 789549)
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with short presentations by relatives and activists who will offer tools to help lobby the Attorney General, DPP and the Home Secretary.
UK citizens accused of crimes allegedly committed in the UK should be tried in Britain on the basis of evidence open to challenge in our courts. We want to prevent the extradition of all these individuals and ask our government to put them on trial in the UK and have faith in our own criminal justice system. Unjust extradition of British citizens to the US must stop.

The address of All Hallows on the Wall is 83 London Wall, EC2M 5NA which is very near Liverpool Street Station.
RSVP to Stephen Sizer.
