Candlelight Vigil and Reading of Names of 171 Guantanamo Prisoners

Candlelight Vigil and Reading of Names of 171 Guantanamo Prisoners

Wednesday, January 11, 2012 - 10:30pm to 11:30pm

January 11, 2012 marks the anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo.  The opening of such an institution has made torture and indefinite detention a prominent  issue in our world today, threatening peace and our morality.  It is our duty as citizens to uphold  peace and the idea that all humans deserve to rights and be treated in ethical ways.  Come and assemble with other groups organizing as part of the National Day of Action Against Guantanamo.  Join the AFSC, San Francisco Friends Meeting, and Bay Area Religious Campaign Against Torture (BARCAT) for a candle light vigil to show your support for freedom, peace, social justice, and human rights! 

 Louise E. Specht of BARCAT and Sandra Schwartz of AFSC will briefly speak. All are welcome to attend.
