Global Day of Action to Close Guantanamo
On May 23rd of last year, President Obama again promised to close the detention facility at Guantánamo. His pledge came in response to the mass hunger strike by men protesting their indefinite detention and to the renewed, global condemnation of the prison. One year later, far too little has changed: few detained men have left the prison and hunger strikes and forced feeding continue. Join the global movement to urge President Obama and Congress to end indefinite detention and close the detention facility at Guantánamo.
