[Produced by Rafael Shimunov] On January 11, 2012, CCR marked ten years since the first men were imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay without charge or a fair trial. CCR staff, volunteers and supporters spent the day in Washington, D.C. calling for Obama to close Guantánamo.
CCR held a press briefing featuring Executive Director, Vince Warren and Legal Director, Baher Azmy at the National Press Club. Then, with a large coalition of allies, CCR demonstrated in front of the White House and the Supreme Court in the largest rally calling for the closure of Guantánamo and an end to all unjust detentions. To close out this important anniversary, Vince was interviewed for the PBS News Hour. To view more information and see highlights from the events on January 11, please visit our “Close Gitmo” webpage.
Today, we remember the thousands of people who have been unjustly detained in the prisons at Guantánamo, Bagram, and all across the United States in Communication Management Units (CMUs) and under Special Administrative Measures (SAMs). We continue to demand that President Obama close Guantánamo and end all unjust and indefinite detentions.
Join CCR in San Francisco on Thursday, January 19 for a panel discussion, “Marking 10 years of Injustice at GTMO: Seeking Accountability for Torture & Unjust U.S. Detentions.”
