Amnesty International is bringing a life-size model of a maximum security cell at Guantánamo to cities across the USA.
The tour is a way to enable people in the United States to get a glimpse of the harsh realities of illegal detention and prolonged isolation.
Visitors to the cell are encouraged to enter and to go through the conditions of isolation and then share their experience in a video message (see below).
At the US detention facility in Guantánamo, detainees are kept for up to 23 hours per day in complete isolation. Watch a panoramic photo from inside the cell to get an idea.
