CLOSE GUANTANAMO AND END U.S. TORTURE POLICIES EVERYWHERE!
Powell & Market
San Francisco
On the 7th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay Prison, say NO to torture! While Obama has said he will close Guantanamo, he has not said anything about repealing the Military Commissions Act (which legalizes torture), stopping extraordinary renditions, or shutting the other U.S. torture facilities such as Bagram Prison in Afghanistan or the many CIA "black sites."

There will be street theater, a speak-out and an orange jumpsuit march. Bring your own jumpsuit, if possible. A limited number of SF WCW jumpsuits may also be made available. Bring your friends, and get the word out:

"We Will Not Accept A Torture State!"

Cosponsored with the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Social Justice Committee, Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink and http://www.FireJohnYoo.org .
