Close Guantanamo Now!

Saturday, January 17, 3pm
Piazza della Repubblica to U.S. Embassy

Amnesty International in Italy is organizing for what will be the 7th anniversary of the arrival of the first detainees at Guantánamo. On January 17 they plan to march from Piazza della Repubblica to the U.S. Embassy, with 254 activists wearing the infamous orange jumpsuits, one for each of the remaining illegally detained prisoners.

We will join Amnesty, as we have in the past, in calling for the immediate closure of the notorious prison, which has become a worldwide symbol of injustice and violation of human rights.

If you would like to represent one of the 254 detainees the day of the event, please let us know (name, email, tel) so we can communicate names to the Amnesty organizers:
info@peaceandjustice.it You will be given a jumpsuit and assigned the name of a detainee; it is therefore important that you make it that day!

For those who prefer not to wear a jumpsuit, you are encouraged to join us to carry signs along the march route.

Meet on the square where Amnesty will have a presence (see map). Those who have signed up to represent a detainee will be meeting at 2pm.

Upshot of our Nov. 9th group discussion on current politics:

It wasn't the Russians that got us Trump. Or Comey. Or even the massive GOP election fraud. It was the DNC.*

To learn how to stop the DNC from delivering us another Trump, read Autopsy: the Democratic Party in Crisis.

Iraq Deaths Estimator
Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand. Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
