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
force feeding. We continue to struggle until all those
detained are free.

citizens and government officials in Washington D.C. to see
humanity of the men in Guantanamo and call for the closure of
prison. For more information about coming to DC contact us at
