5/23/2014 Global Day of Action to Close Guantánamo: Not Another Broken Promise! Not Another Day in Guantánamo!

Guantánamo Bay Detention Center, aka Gitmo, is 12 years old and counting - lies, deceit, torture, depravity, harassment, denial of all civil and human rights, Kangaroo courts, dogs, razor wire and bullies with batons.

Sounds like a Grade B movie set up about a Russian Gulag or WW II German POW camp...But it isn't. It is 21st Century America under the last 2 presidents.

I don't want to hear the whines, "BUT... BUT... Congress."

No NOT Congress. What Bush put in place, Obama has supported through a DOJ acting at his behest - removing even more rights that had once been granted under GW Bush; by assuring NO due process for nearly 50 men still to be held for the rest of their lives and over 50 more innocent men dying in limbo hell called Guantanamo; by assuring harassment, abuse and inhumanity; and by breaking promises made to the American people in order to get elected.

Right of Habeas Corpus, my leftist ass.

It is well past time for Americans to pay attention, instead of lulling ourselves into a false sense of superiority with the droning of political hacks on both sides of the aisle and of talking heads - both manipulating facts and weaving false myths planted by false paradigm masters.

May 23, 2014 - Action on behalf of the people of the planet...Not just to demand the closure of Guantanamo and the end of "indefinite detention," but as a promise that we never allow this horror to happen again...

Be there for the men in Guantanamo and the people around the planet dying for our humanity.
