Boston,Mass.-May 18, 2013:
This weekend is one of global protests to shut
down Guantanamo prison, where most of
the prisoners have been on a long hunger
strike to protest their indefinite detention
without trial or due process-victims of the US
war on terror that has gone horribly wrong.
About 20 protesters held a vigil/speakout
in Boston, Mass., outside Park Street subway
station; this was today, May 18.
The call was to make Obama keep his 2008
campaign promise to close Guantanamo.
It was organized by The Committee For Peace And Human
Rights-Boston, who hold a weekly anti-war vigil
at the same time/location as today's protest;
also Veterans For Peace and Women's International
League For Peace And Freedom(WILPF)helped organize
this protest as well.
Here are links to a short video and some photos of the protest,
