The US detention center at Guantánamo Bay has been open for over 14 years. 55 men remain imprisoned, 16 of whom are cleared for release. Witness Against Torture is working to raise awareness about their torture and indefinite detention. We’re also working to combat Islamophobia across the US. If you want to get involved, we’ve got some ideas for you. Click here to learn more.
