Yesterday morning I got to be part of an Amnesty delegation at Congressman Blumenauer’s office to talk to him about closing our illegal prison in Guantanamo. There were two of us, and we got to chat with his very friendly (especially for 8:30 AM) and knowledgeable staffer Joyce Fleming.
We spoke about Congressman Blumenauer’s long-running opposition to the Guantanamo prison, and for each of us, why closing Guantanamo was personally important to us. Very quick meeting, especially since there is no pending legislation for him to support.
Thanks, Joyce for fitting us even as Bluemenauer was hosting his press conference on his legislation to promote transit options and alleviate the many problems caused by the high price of oil.
