Plymouth Plays Role in Guantanamo Prisoner’s Release 

December 9, 2014

Thanks to efforts of Plymouth member, David S. Marshall, and many others, his client at Guantanamo, Ahmed Adnan Ajam, was one of six prisoners recently resettled in Uruguay. Plymouth Church supported Mr. Ajam’s struggle for freedom in several ways. The church itself contributed $2,000, through an Inspiration Grant, to help pay Marshall’s out-of-pocket expenses. Many congregation members contributed directly and gathered to write letters to Mr. Ajam, to sustain him. Marshall expresses gratitude to the governments of both the United States and Uruguay for this humanitarian act and hopes Uruguay can influence other Latin American countries to follow their lead.
