EVENT CANCELLED Rally & Press Conference to Close Guantanamo; 20 yrs of detention and torture
Date Tuesday January 11
Time 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Event Type Press Conference
Organizer/AuthorLeon Kunstenaar
Location Details
This event has been cancelled.
Press Conference, Speakers, Rally to mark 20 years since the opening of the Guantánamo Bay detention center. 780 men have been detained - all Muslim; today, 39 men remain, most never charged with a crime. Thirteen have been cleared for transfer, but are still imprisoned. Guantanamo is a place of enduring violence against Muslims and an ongoing symbol of U.S. injustice and torture, rendering meaningless America’s commitment to human rights, the rule of law and basic ideas of fairness. Join CODEPINK and to demand that the Biden administration keep its promise to #CloseGuantanamo for good.
