this Friday, January 11th is the 6th anniversary of the first shipment of prisoners to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - aka 'GITMO'

Witness Against Torture, along with many other wonderful groups like United for Peace and Justice, is organizing vigils and actions all over the country on that day there will even be a simulated funeral conducted on the steps of the Supreme Court Building in Washington, DC - for the prisoners who have died at 'GITMO', and for the death of habeas corpus they are asking that wherever we are that day, each of us, wear VERY VISIBLE ORANGE in solidarity with the prisoners - it is the color that they are forced to wear! - we might also think of what we can say to those who ask us why we are wearing ORANGE

In Santa Cruz County, you can also join one of three Friday Peace Vigils that day - please wear orange!
