January 11, 2013 Local Guantanamo Activities

Pax Christi Southern California joins ICUJP and NRCAT in calling for a shutdown of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.

Join NRCAT and other organizations in urging the President to continue working to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. This January’s clarion call is “Eleven Years Too Many!”

If you are able, please join us in Washington, DC, for this important public witness on January 11, 2013. This event will be an important opportunity for NRCAT supporters who have worked on this issue.

If you can’t come to DC, January brings two important anniversaries that offer good opportunities for local organizing:

  • January 11, 2013 – 11th anniversary of the arrival of the first prisoners at Guantanamo.
  • January 22, 2013 – 4th anniversary of the executive order calling for Guantanamo’s closure.
