WHY: In the month marking the shameful tenth anniversary of Guantánamo's opening, the Center for Constitutional Rights presents a panel discussion on Guantánamo, the lack of accountability for US torture practices, and the broader system of unjust U.S. detentions. Join us, and together let’s grow a movement to close Guantanamo and end all unjust US detentions.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public.

Please RSVP and invite your friends on our Facebook event page.
