Thank you for your interest in marking the 16th anniversary of the opening of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on January 11, 2018 to say that torture, discrimination, and indefinite detention are wrong. There is no exception. Any attempt to bring back torture or to send new people to Guantánamo will be strongly opposed in the United States and throughout the world. We invite you to consider planning an event for January 11 or one of the weekends around it.

Guantanamo Bay is a symbol of our nation’s use of torture . Currently, 41 men are imprisoned at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, including five who are cleared for transfer from the prison. Right now it costs an estimated $10.85 million dollars per detainee per year to maintain the prison.

If you have any problems with this form or any questions, please contact NRCAT's Campaign Organizer, Kristin Schol at or at 202-547-1920.
