Psychologists for Social Responsibility [PsySR] has issued a statement in support of the Bermuda government's willingness to take in four of the Uighers who have been wrongfully imprisoned at Guantanamo for many years. As the decision has aroused internal opposition, it is important for the Bermuda government to know that people around the world notice their praiseworthy action. I don't know about you, but I can see a Bermuda vacation in my future!

Psychologists for Social Responsibility thanks the government of Bermuda and Bermuda Premier Dr. Ewart Brown for their humanitarian action in allowing four wrongfully detained Uighers to settle there upon their release after years of detention at Guantanamo. This action is an important statement on behalf of Bermuda in support of human rights and common decency. We encourage other governments around the world, especially the United States government, to emulate Bermuda and also take in Guantanamo detainees.
