Activists Try To Keep Guantanamo Prison In The Public Eye


It was 14 years ago this week that the first prisoners arrived at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba detention camp. Seven years ago, President Barack Obama took office promising to close the prison that had opened under his predecessor, President George W. Bush.   

Bruce Miller, a professor at the Western New England University School of Law is president of No More Guantanamos, a national public education and advocacy group.  He spoke this week with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.

Paul Tuthill is WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief. He’s been covering news, everything from politics and government corruption to natural disasters and the arts, in western Massachusetts since 2007. Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston. He was news director for more than a decade at WTAG in Worcester. Paul has won more than two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for reporting on veterans’ healthcare for WAMC in 2011. Born and raised in western New York, Paul did his first radio reporting while he was a student at the University of Rochester.
