|Jan 11—“Building our Power to Close Guantánamo: 21st Anniversary Virtual Rally”|
Join advocates, organizers, artists, and Guantánamo survivors on January 11, 2023, for a virtual rally to mark 21 years since the Guantánamo Bay prison was opened as part of the so-called global “War on Terror.” Thirty-five Muslim men remain after decades of detention and abuse. Over 700 men and boys have been released, but there has been no measure of justice or accountability.
The majority of men still at Guantánamo have been cleared for release, and only a handful have been charged with a crime in the unjust military commissions system. They are aging, and they are hoping to be reunited with their families before they die.
This anniversary calls on us to mobilize and build our power to collectively close and abolish Guantánamo. We will share actions you can take and other ways to get involved. We know a future without Guantánamo and all that it represents is possible. Join us in making it so.
