Chicago Coalition to Shut Down Guantanamo
Event with Andy Worthington, Candace Gorman and Debra Sweet
Thursday, January 15 at 7:00 p.m.
637 S Dearborn St., Chicago
Come hear Andy Worthington, author of “The Guantanamo Files: The Stories of 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison;” Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can’t Wait; and Candace Gorman, an civil rights attorney who represents a man detained at Guantanamo. They will speak about the current situation at Guantanamo Bay Prison and what it will take to finally win freedom for the men still held captive there.
On January 11, Guantanamo Bay Prison will enter its 14th year of shameful existence. As force feeding, isolation confinement and torture continue to pervade the daily lives of those detained in that prison, we continue to stand with them in their courageous demand to be freed, and we join our voices with theirs to demand their freedom.
Hot drinks and snacks will be provided at Grace Place.
