HeadlineJan 11, 2019

In Washington, police arrested five activists Wednesday for holding banners outside the Supreme Court, calling for an end to torture and the closure of the prison at the U.S. naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The protest came on the 17th anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Forty men remain languishing there; many of them have yet to face a trial.
