Monday, January 11, 4:00 – 5:00 pm, Close Guantanamo, Free the Innocent, BNP Vigil, at the Four Corners, intersection of Kenwood and Delaware Aves. in Delmar. Bring your sign or use one of ours. Stay for a few minutes or an hour.  Let’s stand together.

January 11th will mark the 18th anniversary of the first prisoners arriving at the US naval base at Guantanamo.  Forty men — five of whom were cleared for release during the Obama administration — remain imprisoned there.  BNP’s January 11th peace vigil will focus on Guantanamo and the men unjustly imprisoned there…to call for their release or trial in civilian courts.
