You can make Guantanamo Bay disappear -- and help tear down detention camps that have become synonymous with torture, injustice, and an utter betrayal of human rights.Tearitdown.org is a powerful new Amnesty International project dramatically visualizing the commitment of 500,000 people to tear down Guantanamo Bay.

See for yourself. Act right now to tear down a piece of Guantanamo Bay! 

Tearitdown.org builds on Amnesty's long history of showing how one individual can make a difference. You have the power to tear down Guantanamo Bay one pixel at a time. Once 500,000 people have expressed their determination to end this human rights disgrace -- our image of Guantanamo-style injustice will disappear.

And, more importantly, we'll have the power and strength needed to tear down the real Guantanamo Bay.

One person, one pixel is all it takes. Get your pixel and express your power to end this human rights abomination. 

From across the political spectrum, across the globe, calls are mounting to shut down Guantanamo Bay and either charge and try those imprisoned or release them.

Join Amnesty International in this powerful display of commitment to human rights. Strike the final blow to the Administration's failed policies at Guantanamo BayGet your pixel today. 

Thank you,

Larry Cox
Executive Director
