|Organizer/Author||Act Against Torture|
On 9/28 join local activists for meetings with Senator Feinstein, Senator Boxer, and House Minority Leader Pelosi to demand an end to torture.
Meet Thursday, September 28, 8:30am at Senator Feinstein's office (Montgomery & Market)
We are arranging appointments with both senators and House Minority Leader Pelosi, and we'll start with our visit to Senator Feinstein when her office opens at 9am.
We'll be wearing orange jumpsuits and bearing a very large gift: an orange-ribbon-wrapped cage to represent the reprehensible torture and indefinite detention that our legislators have enabled or failed to prevent over the past five years, at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, Abu Ghraib in Iraq, Bagram AFB in Afghanistan, and in secret prisons and other torture-sites all over the world.
Since it's pretty unlikely we'll be allowed to deliver a large cage in Sen. Feinstein's building, we plan to carry it around the city -- to Pelosi's and Boxer's offices -- looking for an elected official who will take responsibility for the government's heinous activities.
We'll have about a dozen jump suits on-hand (or bring your own!), and will also have orange t-shirts with demands (and our URL) printed on them for folks to wear (and, optionally, to buy).
