Nearly 160 Organisations Urge Biden to Shut Infamous Guantanamo Prison – Counter Information

More than 150 organisations have sent a letter to US President Joe Biden urging him to “prioritise closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.”

The letter was signed by 159 organisations from the US and other countries who called themselves a “diverse group of non-governmental organisations” working on issues including international human rights, immigrants’ rights, racial justice and combating anti-Muslim discrimination.

“It is long past time for both a sea change in the United States’ approach to national and human security, and a meaningful reckoning with the full scope of damage that the post-9/11 approach has caused,” they wrote in the letter on Wednesday.
