Enough is Enough! Close Guantanamo Demo in Parliament Square, 6-8pm tomorrow

London Guantanamo Campaign | 10.01.2008 10:20 | Anti-militarism | Repression | Terror War | London | World

Six years on, enough is enough. It's time to close Guantanamo. Join the London Guantanamo Campaign, Cageprisoners and others and call on the British government to act to close Guantanamo and bring back the remaining British residents. This is an authorised event.

On the sixth anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo Bay, the London Guantánamo Campaign, in conjunction with Cageprisoners, invites you to join us on Friday 11 January 2008 at 6-8pm in Parliament Square (nearest tube: Westminster) to call for an end to the injustice and illegality that is the American military detention camp in Guantánamo Bay. Speakers include Moazzam Begg, Gareth Peirce, Yvonne Ridley, Victoria Brittain, Jean Lambert MEP and others.

We invite you to join us to call on the British government to take action to close Guantánamo Bay down once and for all and to help repatriate detainees who do not have anywhere to go on release. The British government must also seek the release and return to the UK of Binyam Mohammed and Ahmed Belbacha. Please join us in the evening and call on the British government to take action. This is an authorised event.

This demonstration comes at the end of a day of action organised by the London Guantánamo Campaign and Cageprisoners, including a letter being handed in to Downing Street by former Guantánamo detainees calling for the detention facility to be closed and a “statues” action all over London, visiting key sites in the capital. THERE IS STILL TIME TO JOIN IN TOMORROW'S DAYTIME "STATUE" ACTION.

No more torture! No more detention without charge or trial! No more anniversaries!
