JAN 09 Miami Protest To Shut Down Guantanamo Bay!

Fourteen Years of Torture. Fourteen Years of Shame. JOIN US IN MIAMI TO PROTEST AND DEMAND: CLOSE GITMO NOW! **March Starts at: NW 36th St and NW 87th Ave, Doral, FL Ends at: US Southern Command 9301 NW 33rd St Doral, FL 33172 **Parking can be found at: JC Bermudez Park: 3000 NW 87th Avenue, Doral, FL 33172 Fourteen 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. Since January 11 2001, 779 men have been sent to Guantanamo Bay without trial and have been jailed without ever having been charged with any crime. As of November 2015, over 107 prisoners remain locked up, 47 of whom have been cleared for release. A horrific torture prison created under George Bush remains up and running under President Obama, despite his infinite promises to the American people that he would shut it down. 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. WE SAY NO MORE! Join us in Miami on this terrible anniversary as we march to the headquarters of Southern Command, the center that operates Guantanamo Bay military base and detention center, and demand that fourteen years of torture and shame come to an end!
