Subject: [Peacectr_list] Support Hunger Strikers and Close Guantanamo

Today,  many in Maine and around the country are fasting in solidarity with the hunger strikers at Guantanamo and calling on the President and Congress to close guantanomo.  I’m joining them and just signed a petition suggested by columnist James Carroll of the Boston Globe.  Here is his article:

I just signed the petition “President Obama: Close Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay ” on Change.org.

It’s important. Will you sign it too? Here’s the link:

I have also called our congressional offices and urged them to work to  stop the torture, expedite transfers  and close Guantanamo.

Their local numbers are below.  I hope you will do what you can.
