Some 250 people heard from Terry Hicks, father of former Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks, at a May 19 public meeting organised by the Stop the War Coalition. The meeting was also addressed by academic Tim Anderson, Omar Merhi (brother of one of the Muslim men being held in Barwon Prison accused of being terrorists) and STWC's Anna Samson. Responding to a suggestion at a media conference before the meeting that one of Australia's 'most notorious criminals' would soon be coming home from Guantanamo, Terry Hicks commented that one of Australia's most notorious criminals would soon be 'dis-elected'.
