National Day of Action
10 Years Too Many:
January 11, 2012
Washington DC – Join Us!
Be part of a human chain between the White House and the Capitol in protest of the 10th anniversary of the Guantánamo prison and the human rights violations it represents, including torture, detention without charge,
unfair trials, Islamophobia, and impunity for crimes by US government officials.
When: Noon – 2PM Eastern on January 11, 2012
Where: Gather at Lafayette Square at Noon, across from the White House. We’ll start with a rally in front of the White House and then form a human chain down Pennsylvania Ave. to the Capitol.
Note: Please wear orange or black and bring signs that say
“No Guantánamo. No Torture. No Excuses!”
Why: Guantanamo is a global symbol of human rights violations and lawlessness by the US government. According to military experts it is counterproductive to security. We call on President & Congress to: Close Guantánamo & end abuses at Bagram; end indefinite detention & military commissions; charge and fairly try detained men in federal court or release them; ensure accountability for torture & other serious abuses; fully investigate; prosecute and provide remedy for victims; counter Islamophobia underpinning Guantánamo & US detention policies more broadly; and ensure security with human rights.
