Tell President Biden: Shut down Guantánamo Bay!
We urge you to shut down Guantánamo Bay without delay.
Why is this important?
Rather than taking active steps to close the Guantánamo Bay detention facility, President Biden is actively expanding it. According to The New York Times, the Pentagon has begun building a new $4 million courtroom at Guantánamo where the United States plans to hold secret trials starting in 2023.
That means at least another year of this ongoing national shame. It’s not only far from the closure we wanted to see, it’s working backward from it. But before ground breaks we have a moment of opportunity to remind the president of our decades-long demand: CLOSE GUANTÁNAMO.
Sign now to send the president a message he can't miss: the time to shut down Guantánamo is now!
