Berkeley Vigil in Solidarity with March to Guantánamo
Fri Dec 9 2005
March to Guantanamo Set to Arrive on International Human Rights Day
Twenty-five Christians arrived in Cuba on December 6th with plans to set out from Santiago the next day on a solemn fifty-mile march to the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Their goal is to defend human dignity by visiting with the hundreds of detainees who have been held for more than three years under horrific conditions by the U.S. government. The marchers plan to arrive outside the gates of the U.S. naval base and prison complex on Guantanámo Bay on December 10th, International Human Rights Day. They are requesting entry into the compound to visit and interview the detainees as a work of mercy in keeping with their faith. If they are refused, they will hold a fast in solidarity and a vigil to pray for the immediate abolition of torture by all nations. Solidarity vigils will be held in several locations by supporters who did not travel to Cuba. Reports

On Saturday, December 10th at 3:00pm, there was a vigil at downtown Berkeley BART in solidarity with the marchers in Cuba.
