Human Rights Activists Demand: “Uphold the Rule of Law, End Torture and Close Gitmo!” from William Hughes on Vimeo.

On Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 11, 2011, scores of Human Rights activists demonstrated outside the U.S. Justice Department, in Washington, D.C. They were staging “a day of action,” directed at closing Gitmo and ending torture. There were no arrests. Featured in this video are: Author Andy Worthington; activists Ruth Hooke, Justin Norman, and Ray McGovern; and Peace Poet, Luke Nephew. To learn about the moral and legal reasons for this protest action, please go to: WitnessTorture. To check out a slideshow of 25 photos of the demonstration, see: FlickrBillyClub.
