Tear It Down: Guantanamo Bay Prison

I’m adding the “Tear It Down” badge to my site. Amnesty is launching a campaign to get half a million people to sign on to their petition calling for the closure of that infamous prison. Hundreds of people are still incarcerated there, with no charges against them, no clear evidence, and no civil rights protection.

To learn more about what’s wrong with Guantanamo:

The Guardian on the infamy of the prison: http://www.guardian.co.uk/guantanamo/story/0,,2109502,00.html
NPR on the Supreme Court decision to hear the cases of detainees: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=11601680

And there’s so much more — more protests and criticisms all the time.

What if we really are close to shutting it down? Take a minute to be a part of it: sign the petition and pass it on!
