Nonviolence, Community, Resistance: Jonah House | WitnessPhoto
On Thursday, April 30th, 62 members of Witness Against Torture 100 Days Campaign were arrested at the gates of the White House demanding that the Obama administration support a criminal inquiry into torture under the Bush administration and release innocent detainees still held at Guantanamo. Facing the White House, each of the arrestees wore the name of a Guantanamo inmate who had been cleared for release or who had died at the prison. A giant banner they carried read "Justice Delayed is Justice Denied."
