Today, Friday, January 11th is the sixth anniversary of the opening
of the US prison at Guantánamo Bay.
The ACLU and a number of other organizations asked members today to
"wear orange to protest this stain on America's reputation." Snip:
Closing the prison and ending torture and indefinite detention without
charge is a first step towards restoring our reputation in the world.
80 people in Gitmo-style orange jumpsuits were arrested today at the US Supreme Court, in a protest calling for the prison's closure: Link. Other similar protests organized by Amnesty International took place in other world capitals.
There were also protests in Second Life: Link to screengrab-set by Taran Rampersad.
