Guantanamo Prison, 11 Years On — PICTURES

Jan. 11, 2013, 9:35 a.m.

On Fri­day, 11 years after the first de­tain­ee was brought to the U.S. fa­cil­ity at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the “war on ter­ror,” mem­bers of act­iv­ist or­gan­iz­a­tions such as Am­nesty In­ter­na­tion­al and the Cen­ter for Con­sti­tu­tion­al Rights gathered in front of the Su­preme Court in Wash­ing­ton. The demon­strat­ors call for the pris­on to fi­nally be closed and those de­tained there to get fair tri­als or to be re­leased.
