NRCAT Action Alert: Please ask your Representative TODAY to attend Friday briefing on Guantanamo

Dear Friends,

Detainees at Guantanamo, 2002Congressman Jim Moran is hosting an important congressional briefing on Guantanamo this Friday at 10 AM in room B-354 of the Rayburn House Office Building.  Please call your Representative and ask him/her to attend the briefing.

The hunger strike and President Obama’s recent remarks on Guantanamo present the first opportunity in years to bring attention to the ongoing detention without trial of most of the prisoners there.  The more Members of Congress and/or their staff we can get to attend the briefing, the greater the possibility of closing Guantanamo.

Please call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak with your Representative.  You can say something like:  “I am calling to ask my Representative to attend the Congressional briefing on Guantanamo tomorrow, Friday, at 10 AM in B-354 Rayburn.  You can contact Rep. Moran’s office for more information.”

Thank you.  This briefing is an opportunity to build support for closing Guantanamo.


Linda Gustitus, President
Rev. Richard Killmer, Executive Director
