During Omar Deghayes' 5 years of imprisonment at Guantanamo, his family became very outspoken. For the Deghayes family, it seemed history was repeating itself: In 1986, they had fled persecution in Libya where Omar's father had been assassinated, and had sought asylum in Britain. But in 2002, Omar, who had moved to Pakistan, was kidnapped and sold for a $5,000 bounty to US authorities. Details of his subsequent torture at US-run detention centers is well documented. Omar was released, without charges, in December 2007.

In this interview, Omar's brother, Taher, talks about the terror of Omar's imprisonment, but also of the great community of activists from around the world who became involved in trying to free him.

If you've seen the Hollywood movie, Rendition, you'll recognize the story of Saifullah Paracha. In the Hollywood movie, an innocent man is literally kidnapped off a plane by US agents, hooded, shackled and sent to a prison camp. This is essentially what happened to Saifullah Paracha, a Pakistani businessman who in 2003 was removed from a flight and sent to a horrendous US prison camp in Bagram, then on to Guantanamo. As in the movie, the Paracha family had no idea of his whereabouts for over a month. However, unlike the movie which has a happy Hollywood ending, Saifullah remains in Guantanamo where he has been held since 2004. Bread and Roses spoke to Saifullah Paracha's teenage daughter. She lives in Pakistan.
