Tell your representatives in Congress to pass a bill coming up for a vote that would help to stop this injustice once and for all.

For more than a decade, the US has held prisoners at Guantanamo Bay without charge or trial. Itís behavior that directly contradicts the values of fairness, freedom, and respect for rights that the US has long claimed to hold dear.

The government cleared 84 detainees for transfer out of Guantanamo years ago, but congressional restrictions and presidential inaction continue to keep them there, for no good reason.

Join us in demanding that the United States finally transfer those who have been cleared for release, and charge the remainder in federal court.

I saw this on television last night. The way these people are being treated is a total violation of human rights. If another country was holding our citizens in a place like this hell hole, we would refer to them as "hostages". Let's do the right thing and end this nightmare.

Would we please get it right and ask that the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay be shuttered and not GITMO itself! GITMO is a very important training base for the US Navy.
