Close Guantánamo Now
I'm writing in the hope that you might be able to publicize the new "Close Guantanamo" campaign, and specifically the petition calling on President Obama to close Guantanamo, which is on the White House's "We the People" website.
The petition is here:https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/close-guantanamo-now/6cMPlxQw
We're seeking to secure 25,000 signatures by February 6, so please, if this concerns you, sign the petition, publicize it, and tell ten of your friends and relations to sign it. With your help, we can reach our target, I'm sure!
Also, the latest post on the "Close Guantanamo" website - a reminder that it is three years since President Obama promised to close it, which also calls for signatures for the petition - is here:
Please feel free to cross-post it if it's at all useful to you.
