Eighth Anniversary of Guantanamo Prison Day of Action in Washington, DC
01.11.2010 - 01.11.2010 11.30
Organizing Events


11:30 am: Gather at the White House (plaza between the White House and Lafayette Park) for “No More Guantánamos” Theater and Rally.

Following a theater performance comparing the Bush and Obama records on human rights, indefinite detention and Guantánamo, speakers will address the White House, demanding that Guantánamo be closed, the rule of law restored and those who designed and executed torture policies held to account. We will launch the Fast and Vigil for Justice, which will end on January 22, the administration’s self-imposed deadline for closing the Guantánamo prison. Nearly 100 people from around the country (and 40 or so in Washington, D.C.) will participate in the 12-day fast.  We will have orange jumpsuits, hoods and signs at the White House.  Please join us and bring colleagues and friends.
