CAGE’s work has been at the forefront in standing up to and challenging the state whether in relation to complicity in torture and false imprisonment or in facing laws and measures that criminalise growing numbers of dissenting voices within Britain’s diverse communities.
We are from those directly and adversely affected by state repression and form part of the civic machinery that helps keep government in check at a time of heightened fear and anti-Muslim rhetoric, laws and crimes. Our track record shows that we stand firm for our principles and are – and have always been – prepared to pay the the price for them.
We have also facilitated the hand of friendship, forgiveness and reconciliation by organising meetings and tours between former Guantanamo guards and prisoners in a truly unique way, finding ways to construct bridges where none existed.
