May 23 Global Day of Action!


Close the USA's Torture Camp at Guantanamo NOW! 

End Indefinite Detention!

Corner of Seaside & Kalakaua Avenues
Waikiki

Friday, May 23rd, is a GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION.  Actions have been called in more than 25 cities -- and the list is growing.   We intend to be there with them!

Across the globe, the word “Guant√°namo” has come to mean torture, unjust detention, brutality, and inhumane degradation. The prison camp was intended not just to imprison captives but to send a message to the entire world that the U.S. could do whatever it wants to whomever it wants.

One year ago on May 23, when the Guantanamo hunger strike was at its height, Obama promised once again to close the US torture camp at Guantanamo.  Instead the hunger strike was brutally repressed and broken.  Prisoners were forced into isolation cells and force-fed -- both of which are torture.

We must rise up in our hundreds and thousands in villages and cities, here and around the globe, to demand an end to this shameful result of the "war on terror."

Join us at the corner of Seaside & Kalakaua in Waikiki on Friday evening between 6-8pm to join with people around the globe who are demanding the immediate closure of Guantanamo.

We'll have some signs -- and we urge you to bring your own.   Wear Orange!  This is the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend and our message will be seen by thousands, who will then beam pictures around the world via social media.
