End 21 Years Of Injustice

Gitmo Clock 2023 Photos (2)

Photos of supporters, including former prisoners, marking 7,671 days of Guantánamo's existence, on Jan. 11, 2023, the 21st anniversary of its opening.

January 11, 2023 marked the shameful 21st anniversary of the opening of the prison at Guantánamo Bay, a total of 7,671 days. This page shows photos of supporters across the U.S. and around the world who have taken photos with posters in our ongoing photo campaign, via our website the Gitmo Clock, showing how long Guantánamo has been open and urging President Biden to close it without further delay, beginning with the 7,671 days poster for Jan. 11, and continuing throughout the year. The next poster is for 7,700 days on Feb. 9. The response to our call for photos on the 21st anniversary of the opening of Guantánamo was so phenomenal that we've set up this second page for 2023, after posting 130 photos on our initial page.
