August 6 marked sixth months of coordinated prisoner resistance to the unrelenting brutality of President Obama's indefinite detention policy.Added to the calendar on Monday Aug 12th, 2013 7:00 PM
86 of Guantanamo's 166 prisoners have been cleared for release. Of the remainder, only 6 have been formally charged of a crime. The de facto torture these men suffer, many for over 10 years, cannot in any way be morally justified.
It is up to us to stand for principle and justice when our institutions and public officials refuse to do so.
Act Against Torture has gifted us their portable Guantanamo prison cell which we premiered on August 2nd at Oakland's First Fridays Festival of Art and Culture. We repeated the tableau at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf (photo).
