President Obama has conceded that Guantánamo Bay will NOT close by 22 January 2010, breaking yet another promise and leaving over 200 prisoners in perpetual limbo. Prison conditions have not improved and in the past eight years, there has been only one conviction on a lesser charge. Join as we call for the closure of Guantánamo Bay to arbitrary detention, no to torture, freedom and justice for all...take a long lunch break and come and join us.

The illegal prison camp at Guantánamo Bay opened 8 years ago on 11 January 2002
Over 200 prisoners remain, locked up indefinitely…
President Obama has conceded that his pledge to close Guantánamo Bay by January 2010 is unlikely, perpetuating its lawless existence
Join us as we demonstrate to mark the eighth anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo Bay and call on the American administration to keep its promise to shut it down
Time: Monday 11 January 2010, 12.30-2pm
Where: Outside the US Embassy, Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, W1A 1AE (nearest tube: Bond Street)
