Global Day of Action to Close Guantanamo & End Indefinite Detention

Not Another Broken Promise! Not Another Day in Guantanamo!

On May 23rd of last year, President Obama again promised to close the detention facility at Guantánamo. His pledge came in response to the mass hunger strike by men protesting their indefinite detention and to the renewed, global condemnation of the prison. One year later, far too little has changed: few detained men have left the prison and hunger strikes and forced feeding continue. Join us in Washington DC, New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Hawaii, Germany, London, Sydney and in many more communities around the world to urge President Obama and Congress to end indefinite detention and close the detention facility at Guantánamo.

The plan is to meet at West 43rd Street in jumpsuits with signs where we will rally in front of the military recruiting center and walk to another destination.
