Urge the Senate to Close Guantanamo Now

Detainee abuse, imprisonment without charge, unjust military commissions: Gitmo is a frontal assault on American ideals. We’ve been fighting to close it since the beginning. We’ve never stopped, even when the issue was out of the headlines, and we won’t stop until we succeed.

Now, there’s new momentum to close Gitmo and we need your help to seize this crucial moment.

The Senate will soon vote on the annual defense bill, and it includes provisions to prosecute or transfer the remaining 164 detainees. Combined with President Obama’s renewed engagement on this issue, this could finally be the beginning of the end of Gitmo.

Urge your Senators to vote for this bill, and against any amendments that would weaken the Gitmo provisions.
