Support the 86 Days Campaign

A message from Amnesty International:

Long after the scandal at Abu Ghraib and the Administration's denouncement of all that happened there, the New York Times reported last week that in 2005, the Justice Department issued a secret internal memo that endorsed "the harshest interrogation techniques ever used by the Central Intelligence Agency."

We're angry: the America we believe in does not torture people. And in response, we're mounting a national fall campaign to "86" these policies once and for all.

86 days separate two infamous dates: October 17th marks the first year anniversary of the Military Commissions Act and January 11th marks the anniversary of the first detainee transferred to Guantanamo Bay.

Join us on October 17th as we stand and protest the wrong-headed policies these two dates represent: torture, indefinite detention, guilty until proven innocent.
