USCTETIO Acts: Shut Down Guantanamo Day To Act, 1-11; etc..

Shut Down Guantanamo! Day of Action, Jan. 11
 
 
 The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation has endorsed a day of action,
organized by Witness against Torture, on Friday, January 11 to Shut Down
Guantanamo!
 
January 11 marks the 6th anniversary of the first prisoners brought to
Guantanamo .
 
In Guantanamo , prisoners of the U.S. "war on terror" are illegally
transferred to a foreign country (Fourth Geneva Convention, Articles 49 and
76), are held without charge and without the right of habeas corpus, and are
subjected to treatments and interrogation methods which clearly violate the
UN Convention Against Torture’s ban on cruel, inhumane and degrading
treatment.
 
Similarly, Palestinian prisoners of Israel ‘s "war on terror" are also
illegally transferred out of Occupied Palestinian Territories , are held
indefinitely without charge under "administrative detention," and are also
subjected to torture.
 
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation calls on its member groups and
its individual supporters to take part in the Shut Down Guantanamo! day of
action and protest U.S. and Israeli human rights abuses against prisoners.
