On October 14, 2014, WSC-AR representative Kavneet Singh joined a delegation of religious organizations for a meeting with the US Special Envoy for Guantanamo Closure, Mr. Clifford Sloan at the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. National religious representatives called upon the U.S. government to stop any and all torture of prisoners held at the Guantanamo Bay prison, including force-feeding prisoners who are protesting through hunger strikes. The delegation, led by the National Religious Coalition Against Torture (NRCAT), stressed the need to ease restrictions on transfers of prisoners to other countries.
