Rally: Remembering Guantanamo ....11 Years!
Hunger strikes, forced feedings, indefinite detention for life? Obama, the whole world is watching!
There are currently 86 detainees that have been legally cleared for release, but are still being held indefinitely!
166 detainees totally are still at Guantanamo.
Obama promised to close Guantanamo in his first year. Yet, he just signed the NDAA which adds even further restrictions on the ability to obtain transfers for Guantanamo prisoners! Secret Black sites and extraordinary rendition continue. SHAME!
Noon: Gather at either the Marin and SF sides of the eastern walkway, march to middle to converge for silent vigil and rememberance.
1 pm: Rally on SF side, with group reading of names of all the detainees still held.
Bring signs, wear orange shirt with black hood or scarve to stand in solidarity, or come as you are. Some orange jumpsuits and hoods will be available.

Parking available on all 4 "corners", just remember to take
the last exit on hwy 101 as you approach the bridge, or the
first exit after you leave the bridge.
Noon: Walk on the eastern walkway from the north or south ends,
