United Statesoin Witness Against Torture in a rally in Washington, DC and help create a human chain of more than 2,000 people, representing the individuals still detained without charge or fair trial at Guantánamo and Bagram, from the White House to the Capitol. We will raise our voices and demand: Guantánamo is but one in a string of unkept promises. While the media has largely abandoned the issue, a bipartisan consensus is emerging to commit permanently to terrible policies. We need to speak out with a new determination to reach policy-makers, the media, and the public. Buses will be coming to Washington DC from cities throughout theEastern United States. By far the biggest such demonstrationn since the "War on Terror" began. Human rights organizations, legal collectives, grassroots groups, and people of conscience everywhere are rallying to form a human chain from the White House to Congress and to demand real change. Be a part of this historic day!
