Why? Guantánamo is a global symbol of human rights violations and lawlessness by the US government. According
to military experts it is counterproductive to security. We call on President & Congress to: Close Guantánamo & end abuses
at Bagram; end indefinite detention & military commissions; charge and fairly try detained men in federal court or release
them; ensure accountability for torture & other serious abuses; fully investigate; prosecute and provide remedy for victims;
counter Islamophobia underpinning Guantánamo & US detention policies more broadly; and ensure security with
