What is the world coming to?
Hunger strikers, forced feeding torture, and 86 men cleared for release but imprisoned in horrific limbo. This week it ends with us. Sign now:
In 24 hours, President Obama could finally move to close Guantanamo — the most notorious prison camp on earth.
With inmates on a 100-day hunger strike and massive calls for Obama to act, our president has been pushed to respond with a major speech about the prison. If enough of us demand a plan — he could free the prisoners already cleared for release, and appoint a White House official with one mission: close Guantanamo down!
We’re at a tipping point. Sign up to demand Obama close this shameful gulag down, and share the shocking facts below so others join this urgent call:
- Detainees in Guantanamo now: 166
- Detainees facing active charges: 6
- Detainees cleared for immediate release, but stuck in the camp: 86
- Guantanamo inmates on hunger strike: 103
- Hunger strikers strapped down and force fed: 30
- Prisoners who have died in custody: 9
- Children the US has held at Guantanamo: 21
- Detainees tried in civilian court: 1
- ”Unreleasable” detainees who can’t be tried for lack of evidence or torture:50
- Prisoners released by the Bush administration: 500+
- Prisoners released by the Obama administration: 72
- Current annual cost to US taxpayers: $150 million
- Days since Obama first pledged to close Gitmo: 1579
- Time since first prisoners arrived at Guantanamo:
11 years, 4 months, 11 days …
