Thu, 09/11/2008

When will the pursuit of justice finally come to end after September 11--that's September 11, 1973, in Chile. 35 years ago, a coup supported by the US brought General Agusto Pinochet to power and what followed were years of state-sponsored disappearances, torture and executions. The story of the arrest and murder of Joyce Horman's husband, Charles, was told in the Costa Gavras film, Missing. In the decades since her husband's murder, Joyce Horman has worked tirelessly to bring the truth to light. She has just donated the archives of her investigation to the Benson Latin American collection at the University of Texas at Austin.

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.
