Since 1998, every Friday at 12 noon a group of peace activists and others have gathered in front of The White House. In recent years the vigil has focused on closing Guantánamo.
Join us on Friday, September 6, to hear speakers on U.S.-sponsored torture in Guantanamo Bay and Pelican Bay. After fasting on water-only for 61 days in solidarity with hunger striking prisoners, Andrés Thomas Conteris will be fed with nasogastric tubes to show how prisoners are force-fed twice daily in Guantánamo. On August 19, a judge in San Francisco issued an order clearing the way to force-feed prisoners on hunger strike in California. One hunger striking prisoner, Billy Sell, has already died.
