10 Years Too Many:
National Day of Action
Against Guantánamo!

Events in NYC, Chicago, San Francisco and beyond

January 11, 2012 is the 10th anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo. A broad coalition of groups: Center for Constitutional Rights, Code Pink, No More Guantánamos, Pax Christi Physicians for Human Rights, Torture Abolition and Survivors Network, Voices for Creative Non-Violence, War Criminals Watch, War Resisters League, Witness Against Torture, Amnesty International USA and World Can’t Wait—is calling for a major demonstration in Washington, DC and solidarity actions elsewhere to ensure accountability for torture, unlawful detention and other human rights violations committed by the US government in the name of national security. And to demand:

The primary action in DC is a human chain of 2,771 people in orange jumpsuits representing the people still detained without charge or fair trial at Guantánamo and Bagram stretching from the White House to the Capitol. We will chant, we will hold signs, we will not be silent.

Plans for the Washington, DC Protest:

12 pm – Rally in Lafayette Square

1 pm – Form a Human Chain from the White House to the Capitol

During the rally and vigil, activists will be wearing orange jumpsuits and holding a myriad of signs and other visuals.
