  • Letter against 42 days - updated

    Right folks. As part of my campaign to try and get the govt to back down over its plan to extend pre-charge detention to 42 days, I hit upon the idea of writing a letter to be signed by the great and the good, and publish it somewhere important. So it will be in tomorrow’s Guardian.

    A lot of the important signatories came through with help from Anthony Barnett of Our Kingdom, so I’d like to thank him.

    The article about the letter is here. The full letter and signatories will be published in the Saturday Guardian letters page and on CIF.
    Update: Sunder Katwala writes more on World After Bush blog.
