Join in protests around the world marking 100 Days of the Guantanamo Hunger Strike

Almost all of the remaining 166 prisoners at Guantánamo Bay have been on hunger strike since around 6 February. Held for over 11 years, more than half of the prisoners have been cleared for release and only 6 face charges. Of those 6, in the case of at least two prisoners, the evidence has clearly been obtained through torture, including waterboarding. They face no prospect of a fair trial. Ignored by the mainstream media, failed by the Red Cross who left Guantánamo Bay one day before the military used plastic bullets and force against starving, weakened men, and the governments of the states they are from, we call on all citizens of the world to take a stand for justice and join us.
