Justice for the 20 men already cleared for release from Guantanamo

Debra Sweet | Feburary 14, 2023


Washington DC protest Wednesday February 15: Support the Men in Guantanamo Who Have Been Cleared for Release
12:00 noon - New Jersey Avenue & Independence Ave SE across from Longworth & Cannon House buildings

This action will take place at about the same time as a vigil in London, in front of Parliament House in London. Organizer Steve Lane says "We will have signs, but if you can bring your own orange jumpsuit it would be helpful."


January 11, Protests to Close Guantanamo NOW!

Debra Sweet | December 26, 2022 

The Bush regime set up a detention camp on Guantanamo in January 2002, designed deliberately to be out of reach of U.S. and international laws, as part of its “war on terror." 779 Muslim men were detained, almost all held for years with no charges.  Nine died there; 735 have been released without apology or reparations.  21 of the remaining have been “cleared” for release, many of those when Obama was president.  Three of the remaining are called “forever” prisoners whom the government will never charge nor release because to do so would reveal the torture methods the government developed on them.  Very few were ever found guilty of a crime and none received legal due process.

The open violations of human and legal rights of those detained — secret “renditions,” torture by third country allies, “enhanced interrogation," via the CIA — shocked the world. And yet, the U.S. has upgraded Guantanamo.
