PBS Documentary Discusses Roots of the Guantánamo Bay Prison Camp

Last night, PBS aired “Forever Prison,” which highlights the story of the early litigation to close the prison camp on Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, that housed HIV+ Haitian refugees in the early 1990s.   Brandt Goldstein’s “Storming the Court: How a Band of Law Students Fought the President and Won” tells the complete story.  If of interest, I’ve written about the team dynamics of the student/lawyer group here and written a short piece on what the lessons learned from this effort might mean for student activism today here.
