"In beginning to tell the stories of the remaining 171 prisoners at Guantanamo, we are 
delighted to start with the story of Abdul Razak Qadir, one of five Uighurs, Muslims from 
China's Xinjiang province...

On January 13th, Andy Worthington introduced a 
new Close Guantanamo Now! petition to his 
Bay Area audience. Find video of the event, 
A Conversation With Truthout Journalist 
Jason Leopold, here.

779 prisoners have been held at Guantanamo since 
the prison opened on January 11, 2002. Of those, 
600 have been released or transferred, and eight
have died. 

The remaining men are human beings, with feelings, and with families, who, after 
ten years, continue to be subjected to arbitrary detention.
