"adopt" a detainee

No More Guantanamos

World Can't Wait is now a colleague organization of the No More Guantánamos campaign to close Guantánamo Bay Prison. Eight years of scare-mongering are enough. If you think it's time the U.S. closed Gitmo, Bagram and other secret, offshore prisons, please join NMG. They are asking local groups to "adopt" a detainee and tell his story locally, so U.S. communities will see the men as human beings who deserve fair treatment, rather than faceless, nameless "terrorists."

For example, the Amherst (MA) group passed the nation's first municipal resolution calling on Congress to lift its ban on allowing cleared detainees to live in the U.S. and welcoming a few detainees when the ban is lifted. Join them as part of an existing or new local group, and use their toolkits, resources, and networking support. Contact Nancy Talanian at info@nogitmos.org
