Wear ORANGE on Friday as a protest, on the SIX YEAR anniversary :
January 11, 2008 will mark 6 years since the first 20 prisoners arrived at Guantánamo Bay Cuba. Since then, 775 prisoners have passed through the gates and no trials have been completed.
As a symbol of freedom and democracy throughout the world, the United States must hold itself to our own high standards. When we resort to the use of torture, abuse, and indefinite detention we lower ourselves to the level of our enemies and defy the basic values that we hold dear. Guantánamo Bay has tarnished the reputation of the United States and makes a mockery of our core values. It is time to call once and for all for the United States to CLOSE GUANTÁNAMO!
Stand with us on January 11 and let’s prove that those who would advocate for a lower standard are on the wrong side of the law… the wrong side of core American values… and the wrong side of history. Take the pledge now and stand strong in support of justice.
