Extradite Me, I'm British was an evening of film, prison poetry, talks, drama, comedy, nasheeds around the notorious 2003 US-UK extradition treaty currently affecting British citizens Talha Ahsan, Babar Ahmad, Richard O'Dwyer and Gary Mckinnon.
The programme explores questions at the at the heart of British identity: what it means to be a British citizen , the erosion of civil liberties, human rights in a post-9/11 era, British Sovereignty and its big brother relations with America. The event brings together many of the guests of the UK-wide 14 date film, poetry and speakers tour in a single night. The treaty was creation of Blair-Bush partnership that allows British citizens to be spirited away to the US — and its out-of-control judicial system — without the US having to provide any evidence, even if the alleged crimes took place in the UK, and even if the alleged crimes are not crimes in the UK. The event takes its name from a T-shirt by the Arts Against Extraditions collective.
