A week of witness against Guantanamo and all it represents
Witness Against Torture will begin to gather on Tuesday evening, January 7th, to embrace the 40 Muslim men still locked up in Guantanamo and the hundreds of others forever scarred and haunted by the trauma of having been there. We will remember, we will witness and we will move forward in community with each other.
The highlight will be Saturday, January 11th, with a rally and action marking 18 years since the U.S. landed the first plane full of Muslim men bound for that house of horrors. We’re also planning an evening performance event, a panel addressing mass incarceration, and a showing of Justice for Muslims Collective’s poster display Shattering Justice & Re-Making the Muslim Threat. See our schedule here.
We invite you to join us to sing, create, plan, witness, act, fast if you wish, and celebrate our community. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org: include your name, phone number and the dates you plan to be there. We will get back to you with housing and other information.
