Please join ICUJP and allies online or in-person Wednesday, January 11, to mark the 21st anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and the human rights violations and torture it spawned.
At its peak, the illegal detention center at Guantanamo Bay held some 800 men and boys of Muslim faith - most of whom were never charged with a crime. Today, 35 prisoners still languish there.
After the Guantanamo Bay prison camp was opened, the Bush Administration commissioned the torture memos, a series of documents designed to retroactively provide a pseudo-legal justification for crimes against humanity. To date no one in the Bush administration has been called to account for writing and implementing these documents.
Let's send a message to President Biden:
Close Guantanamo NOW and release all detainees!
End torture NOW and prosecute the torturers and those who authorized them.
