ABSTRACT
The article reports on the refusal of Afghan prisoners of war to leave their cells at the U.S. military-run prison in Bagram, Afghanistan. It states that the move of the prisoners is their protest due to the indefinite imprisonment. It says that Bagram is the housing prisoners of war and the destination for victims of torture and kidnapping. It adds that the countless number of Afghan people continues to sacrifice as the growing number of soldiers are sent to do the dirty work of imperialism.
