According to the text of the denunciation, "this demand offers the opportunity to acknowledge and respect basic and essential rights (...) for human autonomy, the right to worship and the right to not to be tortured".
At the naval base that the United States maintains on the Cuban territory of Guantánamo against the will of the island's government and people, the US authorities established a detention center, as part of their much-trumpeted struggle against terrorism.
In Guantanamo,according to the testimony of a large number of ex-prisoners and repeated international denunciations, the detainees are cruelly tortured and mistreated.
