Are you outraged about indefinite detention by U.S. military?

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 22 December 2011

Crimes are crimes and must be denounced whoever commits them. This government has passed yet another bar for disregarding the rule of law and the basic rights of people with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and many of you are rightfully angry about that.

Mounting meaningful, mass actions against the completely unjust and illegitimate continuation of indefinite detention and the prison camps at Guantanamo and Bagram this January is ALSO a meaningful response to the outrageously unjust NDAA. We have been planning for months, with a number of other groups including Witness Against Torture and Amnesty International, for mass protest on the tenth anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo. What better way to send a message to this government and everyone around the world against military detention on U.S. soil than to refuse to accept the moral outrage of sending people from other countries into the "legal black holes" of Guantanamo and Bagram?

Whether you are in an
area that has an event planned or not, you can help get youth on buses to DC  January 11 to participate in a human chain stretching from the White House to the Capitol, representing each and every one of the people still locked away without rights in Guantanamo or Bagram. $30 gets one person more on the bus!

This action will be the first national-level action that will bring into focus and highlight the terrible situation thousands of men imprisoned at Bagram in Afghanistan face: a legal black hole that manages to surpass Guantanamo in many ways.

No human being deserves to be detained indefinitely without trial or tortured.
And with your support, we will mobilize a significant and diverse showing of people determined to bring that message to bear on this terrible tenth anniversary next month.
