Shut Down Guantanamo

  1. Join Amnesty’s virtual trip to Guantanamo asking for it to be closed. Amnesty International has launched an animated online petition asking for people to join our flotilla travelling all the way to Guantánamo.

    It’s not just about designing your outfit, doing your hair or choosing your mode of transport, but also about making a difference by creating an active social community.

    It is now over five years since the first detainees were transferred to the detention camp at the US Naval Base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba

    Despite widespread international condemnation, hundreds of people of more than 30 nationalities are still there: without charge, and with little hope of obtaining a fair trial.

    Enough is enough!

    Guantánamo Bay is a symbol of injustice and abuse and it must be closed down.

    Help us pass the message! Please forward the link to as many people as you can ( and ask them to sign up to the campaign and forward it to their friends and colleagues. People can also link to the flotilla from their website or blog. Find banners and buttons in English, Spanish, French, German & Arabic here: Together we can Close Guantánamo. Let’s give it a good try!
