Join the Witness Against Torture community as we gather in Washington, DC to remember the opening of the prison camp in Guantánamo. This January 11th, 2015, marks 13 years of torture and indefinite detention. Right now 142 men remain, 72 of whom have been cleared for release but remain held without charge or trial. The administration will not disclose how many of them continue to hunger strike and how may are being tortured through the brutality of force feeding. We continue to struggle until all those unjustly detained are free.
If you can only come for one day, join us for the major event with our coalition partners on January 11th. Or join us as we gather in community all week, from Monday, January 5th until Tuesday January 13th, to fast in solidarity with the men at Guantánamo, especially those who remain on hunger strike, and to use our creative energy to encourage citizens and government officials in Washington, DC to see the humanity of the men in Guantánamo and call for the closure of the prison.
