We'd like you to express what you think the last ten years have been like for Gary McKinnon since his arrest and to write a poem or short prose that demonstrates how long ten years actually is by focusing on writing about what the last 10 years have meant in your own life, and/or what you think it must be like for Gary, someone with Asperger's Syndrome, being kept in limbo in a heightened state of fear for ten years... And what the loss of ten years of your life and your youth can deprive you of.
All poems/prose should end with the added tagline “don’t let Gary go” which is a direct appeal to the British Government to keep Gary in the U.K.
Your poem/prose can be happy or sad, tragic or traumatic, inspiring or devastating, about loss or gain, depression or mental illness, or feeling alone without hope of change or of any light at the end of the tunnel.

We must never allow the erosion of Civil liberties that have always been at the very core of British Justice and which brave men and women died to attain. Compassion is the mark of civilization and is exactly what distinguishes our society both from anarchy amd from tyranny
