Civil society organisations from the Americas urge the closure of Guantánamo (2016)

On January 11, 2002, in the wave of counter-terrorism measures put in place by the United States government after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, former US President George W. Bush opened the prison of Guantánamo, located at the US naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

In a joint statement, APT and 58 other civil society organisations urge the US government to shut down Guantánamo immediately.
