Hundreds of people of around 35 various nationalities are held in a legal black hole at the US Naval Base in Guantánamo Bay in Cuba, most of them without access to any court, legal counsel or family visits.
Mordechai Vanunu was employed as a technician at Dimona, Israel's nuclear
installation, from 1976 to 1985. He discovered that the plant was secretly
producing nuclear weapons. His conscience made him speak out and in
1986 he provided the London Sunday Times with the facts and photos
they used to tell the world about Israel's nuclear weapons programme.
His evidence showed that Israel had stockpiled up to 200 nuclear warheads,
with no debate or authorisation from its own citizens.

Arabs - Iraq
Marsh Arabs are descendants of the ancient Sumerians and Babylonians
and are probably the oldest people in the world-- long predating
the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks. They invented writing and, according
to their myths, emerged from a mix of air and water six or seven
thousand years ago.
