A Nonviolent Rally To Close Guantanamo Prison

The silent protest involved about 20 people. These few walk down Monroe Avenue in Brighton at 12 Corners

An action in solidarity with Guantanamo prisoners on

Thursday, June 27th, 2013 4:15 – 5:30 PM, Twelve Corners, Brighton

We have orange jumpsuits, chains and (maybe) a large cage.  We plan to walk single file along the park sidewalk for an hour.  We will also have informational handouts.



12cornersGitmoThis action is also in support of former VFP President Elliott Adam’s hunger strike in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay. He will be on his 43rd day, a 300 calorie per day hunger strike.

Why? Because 86 prisoners are innocent, completely cleared by the US Government for over a year and . . . They are still in prison.

We must not condone or tolerate the imprisonment of innocent men. It is UnAmerican and in fact immoral and illegal.

We cannot tolerate illegal detention and Guantanamo Bay needs to be closed.
