Amnesty International - CLOSE GUANTANAMO - Online Action

Amnesty International, January 11, 2023

The military detention facility at Guantánamo Bay is a glaring, longstanding stain on the human rights record of the United States. Today, it continues to hold 35 Muslim men, most without facing charges or a trial. Many, like Toffiq al-Bihani, were tortured by the U.S. government. And Toffiq, along with 19 other detainees, has been cleared for transfer to other countries, yet he remains behind bars without charge or trial.

President Biden has a critical window of opportunity to end these ongoing abuses by closing the detention center before the end of his term.

Help us close Guantánamo and ensure the transfer of all cleared detainees to countries where their human rights will be respected.
