TASSC Members at a Close-Guantanamo Rally

TASSC members braved the cold on Sunday, January 11th to show up in front of the White House to demand the closing of the prison at the US Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  Protesters including Witness Against Torture, Dorothy Day Catholic Worker, National Religious Campaign Against Torture, Pax Christi, and Code Pink, gathered to observe the thirteenth anniversary of the arrival of the first detainees to the site. All of those present reminded President Obama that a year ago he said 2014 would be the year “we close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.”
