Actions will also take place in D.C. Veterans affiliated with VoteVets.org will likely be there to lend their support to the need to shut down the prison facilities at Guantanamo.

For the laws that continue to be broken even though Obama pledged to ensure policies and practice were no longer in violation of domestic or international law...

For the lives that have been destroyed as a result of being held at Guantanamo without charge, trial, or, if innocent, any prospect of release...

And, for the promises that have not been kept by the Obama Administration, this virtual and non-virtual Day of Action is a response to the lip service that Obama has paid human rights advocates and concerned citizens. It is a demand for concrete action now, action which those who have been held at Guantanamo and those who are being held at Guantanamo deserve.

For more information which may help you formulate a note, a blog posting, or diary that could lend support to discussions during this Day of Action, visit the ACLU's website, Close Gitmo. Also, check out reports and information posted on Amnesty USA's page on Guantanamo.
