News Corpse is wearing orange today to mark the sad persistence of the stain on American justice and morality that is Guantanamo Bay. This detention facility is an unprecedented departure from the Constitutional principles upon which our nation was founded. Six years is too long to tolerate this unlawful, unproductive and unethical policy.
The ACLU has initiated a campaign to remind all Americans what it means to be American. They are asking everyone to wear orange today and to help educate their family, friends, and others about this issue. I am asking that everyone contact local and national media today (and for as many more days as it takes) and advise them that we will not sit back any longer and pretend that we’re not responsible for the atrocities being done in our name. Read the fact sheet below and go to the Close Guantanamo web site for more information and opportunities to take action.
