Andy Worthington says...

Here's my latest article, featuring photos from, and my report about the eight coordinated global vigils for the closure of Guantanamo that took place on April 5, 2023 in London, Washington, D.C., New York, Mexico City, Brussels, Los Angeles, Raleigh, NC and Cobleskill, NY, involving organizations including the UK Guantanamo Network, Close Guantanamo, Witness Against Torture, the World Can't Wait and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations).

The ongoing vigils take place on the first Wednesday of every month, and, as well as calling for the closure of the prison, also highlight the plight of the 17 men still held (out of 31 in total) who have been approved for release but have no idea when, if ever, they will actually be freed.

Please join us next month if you can, on Wednesday May 3. In London, we'll be holding a vigil outside the US Embassy in Nine Elms, before returning to Parliament Square on Wednesday June 7. You're welcome to join an existing vigil, or to set up your own.
