Hunger Strike at Guantanamo
April 11, 2013 - National Day of Action to Close Guantanamo & End Indefinite Detention

Detained men are on hunger strike, putting their lives on the line for the change that President Obama promised four years ago. We can't let indefinite detention in our names drag on another minute.

Amnesty International, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Witness Against Torture, World Can’t Wait and other groups are calling for an emergency National Day of Action on Thursday, April 11 to demand the closure of Guantánamo and an end to indefinite detention. There are currently over 20 vigils scheduled in 15 different states!

Raise your voice! Join the Day of Action!:

There's never been a more critical time help us build political pressure to end the immense suffering at Guantanamo prison.
Join a local demonstration demanding the closure of Guantánamo.
