Witness Against Torture

At our inception, Witness Against Torture was a group of friends who– as Americans and Catholics– walked to Guantanamo to visit the prisoners, to perform a work of mercy, to respond to the victims of the war on terrorism.Once we returned from that journey, we began to organize more broadly to shut down Guantanamo, working with interfaith, human rights and activists organizations. We have planned a series of nonviolent direct actions to expose and decry the administration’s lawlessness, build awareness about torture and indefinite detention amongst Americans and forge human ties with the prisoners at Guantanamo and their families.
