Our government has done it's best to hide the torture practiced at the experimental prison camp of Guantanamo, and forestall any attempts at accountability for the perpetrators and enablers of those crimes. But thanks to the courageous actions of the prisoners held there, we now know more details of continuing brutality, and excuses of ignorance about what is transpiring, short of deliberate head-turning, are no longer plausible.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Apr 16th, 2013 5:28 PM
The U.S. engaged in torture and it is up to us to demand closure of the death camp and repudiation of the lawlessness exhibited there.
The hunger strike by the Guantánamo prisoners is their cry to the world, which we must hear and support. Right now, today - our voices and our actions can make a difference.
