CALL TO ACTION: Allow cameras into Abu Ghraib Prison Now!
This is important. We must demand that the ICRC, the UN and Amnesty International be allowed access to Abu Ghraib, NOW. TODAY!

They must be allowed to go in there with cameras and they must be allowed to take pictures of the prisoners, NOW. Not next month, or next week or even tomorrow. NOW!

Everyday that we lose, is another day we lose valuable evidence. There are way too many reports of prisoners being severely beaten and even killed. In any brutality case, about the only way to prove it in a US court of law, is if you have pictures. And the pictures must be taken inside the prison in order to prove that that was were the brutality was inflicted.

The reason this is so urgent is that bruises fade, prisoners can be moved, the worst cases are being hidden right now.

Please write your reps and the media and demand that they send in cameras? Thanks!

1. Please folks, this is important
We need a snapshot of the exact conditions of the prisons in Iraq at this moment.

The prisoners who are in jail right now, that have been recently beaten must be documented. The conditions that they have been forced to live in must be documented.

Every moment that we lose, the harder it will be to document these atrocities. In another week the beaten prisoners will be hidden away in Iraqi hospitals, the walls will be painted, everyone will have a copy of the Geneva Convention and Bu$h & Co will again get away with murder.
