Format: Paperback
In this wonderful book, the many writers demonstrate the exceptional injustice done to a 15-years-old Canadian, Omar Khadr, who was captured by the U.S. in Afghanistan. For many years he was tortured and held in solitary confinement at Guantanamo.

The stories describes the dirty game of the superpower U.S. in a post 9/11 era and the Kafkaesque powerlessness of a Muslim child who was used as a political pawn.
For instance to ever get out of Guantanamo this child had to plead guilty of crimes he never committed, like the murder of a U.S. soldier who was killed by friendly fire.

With this conviction in a illegal Military Court this child became the first person since World War II to be convicted for war crimes committed while still a minor. Not proven crimes to be precise!

Perhaps is the most distressing fact that the Canadian government never lifted a finger to help its juvenile citizen.

Great work by Janice Williamson who shows us that with the story of Omar Khadr, the global issues of today are being told.
