Bloggers Unite: Close Guantánamo

From Amnesty International:

Close Guantánamo

Close Guantanamo Action GuideOn January 11, 2002, the US transferred the first detainees to the US Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Five years later, despite widespread international condemnation, hundreds of people of more than 30 nationalities remain there. Amnesty activists all over the world will mobilize to call for the closure of the prison facilities at Guantánamo. » Download the guide

Bloggers UniteWhy focus on Guantánamo Bay?

  • Because the U.S. administration chose Guantánamo as the location for this detention facility in an attempt to hold detainees beyond the reach of U.S. and international law.
  • Because Guantánamo has become the most visible symbol of U.S. human rights abuses in the name of the “war on terror.”
  • Because five years of lawlessness is too long.
  • Because Guantánamo must be closed.

Our central message is the totality of the detention regime in Guantánamo — harsh, indefinite and isolating which amounts to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and is in violation of international law. All those who remain in detention must either be charged with a crime and given a fair trial or released unconditionally.

Raise Awareness, Demand Justice

Please visit our our Denounce Torture page for downloadable materials to help organize events in your community. The Close Guantánamo Organizing Guide includes:

  • background information,
  • flyers and
  • actions.

Use these materials to mark the fifth anniversary of these unlawful detentions. Plan a vigil or rally in front of your local or federal courthouse on January 11, 2007, to educate the public and demand that the U.S. government end this dark chapter in U.S. history by closing the facilities in Guantánamo Bay and disclosing the rest. In addition to events all across the country and around the world, there will be a press conference and rally in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC demanding access to justice and human dignity for all.

We look forward to your continued participation! Together we will ensure that Guantánamo detainees receive a fair trial or are released unconditionally, and that the detention facility is closed for good. Five years of indefinite detention is five years too long.
