John Parker: Detained while delivering aid to Gaza

Premiering the new documentary, "Honor Bound: Close Guantanamo Now!"
Along with NRCAT (National Religious Campaign Against Torture) and director Robert Corsini, Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace have put together a thirty-minute documentary outlining some of the many abuses of the prisoners at the facility, including interviews with past detainees. "Honor Bound: Close Guantanamo Now!" outlines our work in bringing to light a stain on this country that most people would like to forget, or in many cases don't even realize is still happening.
