PRESIDENT OBAMA: CLOSE GUANTANAMO PRISON

President Obama,

Seven years ago, you said on national television that you were going to close Guantanamo. Seven years later, the world is still waiting. Over its history since the first prisoners arrived on January 11, 2002, Guantanamo has imprisoned 779 detainees, most of whom were held without charge or trial. As of November 2015, 107 detainees remain imprisoned at Guantanamo. The prison camp is not only an outrageous violation of the rights of the hundreds who have been held there, it is a blight on the history of the United States.

We, the undersigned, call on President Obama to visit Guantanamo Bay and use his executive powers to close the prison (and return the navy base to the people of Cuba!).

Sincerely,

Who's signing

    The people of the US would never tolerate a Cuban military base, let alone a

    Cuban torture prison on its soil. We must remove our soil from their land

    What has gone at this prison is alarming and against International laws. Not charging people for a crime and holding them for years is unconscionable. And also when they have been cleared for release they should be released immediately.

    Finally, these men must be released to countries who will PROTECT the human rights of the released and their immediate families.
