We are closing Guantanamo Bay for good (#OpGTMO Press Release)

Greeting Citizens of the World,

We have watched with dismay as a great injustice is being committed by the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT in the Guantanamo Bay concentration camp.

Imagine your Father, Your Brother, Your Husband Arrested
Sold for a bounty.
Black bagged and sent away to a foreign country.
Tortured for years on end.
Accused of being a terrorist.
No trial or charge is given.
No lawyer is brought in.
No one is allowed to see him.
With no end in sight.

With no hope for justice, over 100 men who have been held and tortured for years have gone on a hunger strike. On May 18th, it will have been 100 days since they have eaten voluntarily. Prisoners have died suddenly, violently, and suspiciously. All inmates in Guantanamo Bay have been locked in solitary confinement. Some are being force fed, an international crime. These men face the prospect of a terrible death in prison despite many of them having been cleared for release years ago. One defense attorney has already committed suicide.

It is time for the Obama administration to admit that this is a disgrace for any civilized country which upholds the rule of law. Guantanamo Bay must be closed at once, and the prisoners should be either returned to their home countries or given a fair trial in a federal court. Guantanamo Bay is an ongoing war crime. Anonymous will no longer tolerate this atrocity.

We are outraged. We, the people and Anonymous, will not allow the most expensive prison on earth to be run without any respect for international laws. We stand in solidarity with the Guantanamo hunger strikers. We will shut down Guantanamo.

On May 17 to May 19, to coincide with the 100th day of the hunger strike, we urge everyone to join global actions on the ground and hacktivist protests as well as twitterstorms, email bombs, and fax bombs, in 3 days of nonstop action.

    Most of the anger I have seen displayed in this thread is destructive anger, not constructive anger. “Bring down the government” “Obama sucks!” etc. accomplishes nothing but perhaps helping you vent a little steam to people who don’t know you and don’t give a shit that you are angry.

    If you are LEGITIMATELY angry, and want to DO something about it, follow the guidelines outlined in this post. Call your representatives. The government derives it’s power FROM THE GOVERNED! When you call your state representatives and threaten to take your vote away from them if they do not meet your demands, and when several thousand OTHER people make the same phone call, it scares the little weasels into behaving themselves for at least a short while. Nothing scares a greedy corrupt politician better than threatening to take a vote away from them!

    DDoS Congressional phone lines by calling them up repeatedly, daily, with our demands. No personal phone calls for you at work Mr/Ms Congress Person. We will NOT be silenced. We will NOT be ignored. YOU SHOULD BE EXPECTING US…
