Abdul Aziz Naji, an Algerian Muslim, was captured in Pakistan and brought to the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he has been behind bars for more than five years.

His local attorneys, Doris Tennant and Ellen Lubell, want you to know why you should care.

Tennant and Lubell, who are representing Naji pro bono, believe that it is important for America that he have his day in court and will present a talk next week entitled “What's Going on at Guantanamo and Why Should We Care?" The talk, part of the Newton Dialogues on Peace and War program, will take place on Wednesday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Newton Free Library.
