January 11 Day of Action: Last Chance for Leadership to Close Guantánamo


Add to My Calendar Monday, January 11, 2016 12:00pm to 1:30pm


The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500

On January 11, 2016, join CCR and allies in Washington, D.C. to call on the President Obama to close the prison, end indefinite detention, and ensure accountability for torture.

Today, there is a renewed climate of fear and hate reminiscent of the post-September 11 mindset that led to torture and indefinite detention in the first place.  Guantánamo is the bitter legacy of a politics of fear, which must be rejected. ​President Obama has just one year left to fulfill his first-term promise by closing Guantánamo and ending indefinite detention. It is the last chance for leadership.
