Protests planned at White House for 10-year Guantanamo anniversary

The groups are planning a rally in Lafayette Park and then a march to the Capitol.

Similar protests are being planned in London on Wednesday, and rallies are also being held this month in New York and San Francisco.

Prisoners at Guantanamo also are planning protests on the prison’s 10th anniversary. Lawyers for Guantanamo detainees told The Washington Post that the protesters had informed guards they would be refusing food for three days and would attempt to sleep in recreation areas.

Prisoners at Guantanamo protested in similar fashion on last year’s anniversary.
