Guantanamo Day

Today is the 5-year anniversary of the US government's illegal and impune imprisonment of hundreds of helpless men they gathered off of the roadways of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Yes, 5-years ago today, the US government -- without the protest of either the Afghan or Pakistan governments to demand rights for their citizens -- opened Guantanamo Bay and closed the door on international law.

Protesters throughout the world today wore orange jumpsuits and masks to declare January 11th the International Day to Shut Down Guantanamo and to remind us all that we have a long way to go toward universal humanity.
