Witness Against Torture

Witness Against Torture Event

Save the Date: Witness Against Torture in DC, January 3rd - 13th, 2016

This came from an email from Witness Against Torture this past October:  “Please save the date for our annual gathering in Washington, D.C. January 3-13, 2016. We will fast, reflect and lift the voices of the men unjustly detained at Guantanamo Bay Prison in the streets of Washington, DC.

January 11th, marks 14 years of torture and indefinite detention at the prison, as well as President Obama's 8th year of broken promises. This is our final chance to hold his administration accountable to their promise to release those unjustly detained and close the prison. Right now 114 men remain detained, 52 of whom have been cleared for release and are held without charge or trial.

Let us come together to use our creative energy and direct action to encourage citizens and government officials to see the humanity of the men and call for the closure of the prison.

If you only come for one day, join us for the rally with our coalition partners on January 11th.”

Wish I could join them!
