Join the Witness Against Torture

Please start making your travel plans to Washington D.C. for our
annual fast to close Guantanamo and end torture. - January 5th -13th,
2015.

You are all invited to Join the Witness Against Torture community as
we gather in Washington D.C. to remember the opening of the prison
camp in Guantanamo. This January 11th, 2015, marks 13 years of
torture and indefinite detention. Right now 149 men remain, 79 of whom
have been cleared for release but remain held without charge or trial.
The administration will not disclose how many of them continue to
hunger strike and how many are being tortured through the brutality of
force feeding. We continue to struggle until all those unjustly
detained are free.

If you can only come for one day, join us for the major event with our
coalition partners on January 11th. Or join us as we gather in
community all week, from Tuesday January 5 until Tuesday January 13th,
to fast in solidarity with the men at Guantanamo, especially those who
remain on hunger strike, and to use our creative energy to encourage
citizens and government officials in Washington D.C. to see the
humanity of the men in Guantanamo and call for the closure of the
prison. For more information about coming to DC contact us at
