Rallies Around the Country Marking 16 years of Guantánamo Prison
01.11.2018 - 01.11.2018 
Community Events


Donald Trump threatens to "fill up" the U.S. torture camp at Guantanamo, saying "we have to get much less politically correct." We, along with much of the world, look at the U.S. government's 16 years of unjust imprisonment of more than 700 men, the unspeakable abuse and death inflicted as well as the harm to humanity in general and strongly and loudly say NO.  Close Guantanamo now!
