January 11th - Day of Action Against Guantánamo Bay Detentions
January 11, 2008 marks the six-year anniversary of the arrival of the first detainees at Guantánamo Bay. The prison at Guantánamo Bay has tarnished America’s image and diminished our ideals. It is a symbol of torture, abuse, and injustice. Its closure is long overdue.
