This week’s print was made to help bring awareness and some funding to a campaign that has a mission to shut down Guantanamo Prison. Witness Against Torture was a group of friends who– as Americans — walked to Guantanamo to visit the prisoners, to perform a work of mercy, to respond to the victims of the war on terrorism.
Once we returned from that journey, we began to organize more broadly to shut down Guantanamo, working with interfaith, human rights and activists organizations. We have planned a series of nonviolent direct actions to expose and decry the administration’s lawlessness, build awareness about torture and indefinite detention amongst Americans and forge human ties with the prisoners at Guantanamo and their families. The profits from this week’s print will be we donated to the Witness Against Torture organization. For more information please visit, www.WitnessTorture.org.
