Please join CODEPINK SF Bay Area, Berkeley No More Guantanamos, Progressive Democrats of America Oakland, Triple Justice, Extinction Rebellion Peace, and more allied groups on Wednesday, January 11th, the 21st anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay and the human rights violations and torture it spawned. At its peak, the illegal detention center at Guantanamo Bay held some 800 men and boys of Muslim faith - most of whom were never charged with a crime. Today, 36 prisoners still languish there.
When: Wednesday, January 11, at 1pm
Where: UC Berkeley Law School, Bancroft Way & College Ave. Berkeley
This action will highlight UC Berkeley Law Professor Yoo's complicity in U.S. torture. Yoo provided erroneous legal cover for the U.S. military and CIA to torture captured men, most of whom have never been charged with crimes. Professor Yoo should be prosecuted, not teaching law. Picket line, speakers, songs for Yoo (come sing!), help deliver letter requesting Yoo contribute to the Guantanamo Survivors' Fund Give to the Guantanamo Survivors Fund | No More Guantanamos. Please contribute if you can.
