One Arrest in San Francisco Solidarity Vigil for Guantanamo Bay Hunger Strikers
Chris Rojas
Protesters held a demonstration yesterday in San Francisco in solidarity with Guantanamo Bay hunger strikers, culminating in a dramatic civil disobedience where demonstrators wearing orange prison jumpsuits blocked traffic. Police gathered and attempted to break up the protest, pushing protesters off the street, and arresting one. The hunger strike has garnered international media attention and public outcry as over 130 out of 166 detainees are refusing food, prompting prison officials to force feed them, which is considered torture by the UN and other bodies. More demonstrations are planned for this Thurday, April 11 in the Bay Area as well as across the US for a day of action.
