Experiments with truth: 1/12/11

    • A group of 173 human rights activists, each wearing an orange jumpsuit and a black hood and representing each of the remaining 173 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, rallied in front of the White House on Tuesday to mark the ninth anniversary of the detention center’s opening and to protest the Obama administration’s failure to close it.
    • Meanwhile, sixty people blocked three entrances to the Justice Department in Washington D.C. yesterday to protest the government’s failure to close the Guantánamo detention center and the continued use of torture against detainees. The Day of Action, organized by Witness Against Torture, extended beyond Washington. Ten were arrested at the Federal Building in Chicago, Illinois and actions were also held in Miami, Pittsburgh, Madison and elsewhere.
