"Join us on the 11th anniversary of Guantánamo prison to call on President Obama to keep his promise to shut it down, and for all branches of the U.S. government to uphold human rights:
Close Guantánamo: all detained people must either be charged & fairly tried, or be released
Resolve the cases of the publicly cleared detainees, including Shaker Aamer & Djamel Ameziane
End indefinite detention & remove detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act
End unlawful killings with drones and other weapons
Ensure accountability for torture, unlawful killings & other abuses
