Tear It Down: Sign Amnesty International’s petition to close Guantánamo


Amnesty International

Launched just eight days ago, and already featuring 46,000 signatures, Amnesty International’s new petition campaign to close Guantánamo, Tear It Down, is just a click away.

Flash, clever and requiring very little time to participate –- which you do by signing up and removing one pixel from a picture made up of 500,000 pixels –- this is, of course, no substitute for more in-depth involvement in tackling the criminal politicians responsible for the existence of Guantánamo and the secret prisons, but if you’re reading this here then you probably already know that.

If not, settle in, get yourself a beverage of your choice, and feel free to browse through the archive.
