Close Guantánamo with Justice Now

The Historians Against the War Steering Committee has joined the Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International, and other groups in endorsing a statement being prepared for the January 11 ninth anniversary of the establishment of the Guantánamo prison camp. The statement, entitled “Close Guantánamo with Justice Now,” is on-line at http://www.indybay.org/uploads/2010/12/29/guantanamo.pdf. Jeremy Varon of the New School history department is helping to recruit individual signers with academic affiliations (the varied list currently includes Noam Chomsky, Todd Gitlin, and Michael Berube among many others). Anyone wishing to sign can send an e-mail to Jeremy at jvaron@aol.com with name and affiliation.
