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.

On January 11 people of conscience everywhere are invited to symbolize and express their disgust with the national shame that is Guantánamo Bay.

Quick Facts:
- Number of people detained at Guantánamo since January 11, 2002 - 775
- Number of trials completed - 0
- Number of detainees still at Guantánamo as of December 1, 2007 - 305
- Youngest known detainee held in Guantanamo - 13
- Oldest known detainee held in Guantanamo - 98

I have my orange on today.

Number of Operations Iraq Freedom and Enduring Freedom casualties as confirmed by U.S. Central Command: 4375

Dawg, we had no demonstration here, but I wore my orange shirt in protest of the GOP Gulag.

Off topic: today's second article at my place should interest you. :-)
