Thirteen Years of Torture.
Thirteen Years of Shame.
JOIN US IN PROTESTING TO DEMAND: SHUT DOWN GUANTANAMO!
Thirteen years ago, the United States brought the first detainees to Guantanamo Bay. The detention center has since then become a place of torture and shame. Released detainees claimed that waterboarding, sexual humiliation, and forced drugging were used on prisoners. Six detainees have committed suicide.
Wikileaks produced documents from the US government stating that at least 150 Afghanis and Pakistanis detained in Guantanamo were never a risk at all, were brought in by mistake or for no clear reason, and then were held without due process for years. These innocent people include a camera man from Al Jazeera and a 70 year old with dementia with "no reason on record" for being held. They have been separated from their families and subjected to cruel treatment for absolutely no reason.
This has gone on thirteen years too long!
Join Miami on this terrible anniversary as we march to the headquarters of Southern Command, the center that operates Guantanamo, and demand that thirteen years of torture and thirteen years of shame come to an end!
