Description
On Monday, June 14, twenty-four activists with Witness Against Torture were acquitted in Washington, D.C. Superior Court of charges of “unlawful entry with disorderly conduct.” The charges stemmed from demonstrations at the US Capitol on 21 January 2010 - the date by which President Obama had promised the closure of the Guantanamo detention camp. “With his decision, the judge validated the effort of the demonstrators to condemn the ongoing crime of indefinite detention at Guantanamo,” said Bill Quigley, Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
