The Chicago Coalition to Shut Down Guantanamo holds vigils at Dearborn and Jackson in Chicago - traditionally on Fridays at 4:30 p.m. to support the Guantanamo Hunger Strikers and to demand that Guantanamo be shut down.
Some of us wear orange jumpsuit and black hoods, while others talk with people on the street. As each day passes the more urgent the situation for the men still remaining becomes. The only way to ensure the health and safety of these men and end the Hunger Strike is that the 86 cleared for release be released and the rest be charged and given a fair trial. It is on us to keep the hunger strike and the humanity of these men in the public eye.
