14 Years of Torture: Time to Shut Down Guantánamo

Join host Emma Lugo as she interviews guests Megan Harrington, Max White and Marty Fromer of Amnesty International on the upcoming 14th anniversary of the opening of the US torture prison, Guantánamo Bay, which still holds sixty prisoners.  On Wednesday, January 11th at 4pm, Portlanders plan to mark the sordid anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo Bay Prison with a visibility action at the corner of Hawthorne and Grand.  Their message is '14 Years of Human Rights Abuse at Guantánamo - Shut it Down'.  This will be a last ditch effort to ask President Obama to fulfill his promise to close the prison.  Amnesty International is currently working on a campaign to get President Obama to close the prison before he leaves.
