Vigil for Justice - Shut Down Guantanamo

10:00 am to 11:00 am
JFK Federal Building, Gov't Center, Boston

Signs and banners welcome; a few will be provided (along with orange
jumpsuits for the visual starkness of the detainment).

Join us for a solidarity vigil outside the federal JFK building in
Government Center for one hour on Wed, December 5.

The Supreme Court will hear the two consolidated cases testing the legal
rights of Guantanamo Bay detainees on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 10 a.m. -
the only case scheduled for that day. Boumediene v. Bush (06-1195) and Al
Odah v. U.S. (06-1196) - whether Guantanamo Bay detainees have a
constitutional or common law right to challenge their detention through
habeas claims in U.S. federal courts (consolidated, one hour hearing).

And mark you Calendars for January 11th, 2008, The International Day to Shut
Down Guantanamo, as Witness Against Torture takes to the streets of DC,
marking six years of illegal detention, torture and abuse.

Boston solidarity vigil organized by Witness Against Torture's Boston Bureau
and Friday Action for the Rights of Detainees.
