#GtmoClock Twitterstorm Package on Guantanamo Bay!
Raise Awareness on social media about those prisoners still held in Guantanamo Bay. To highlight the fact that 84 of the 164 who still remain have been cleared for release, many of them twice, including Shaker Aamer, the last British resident who remains. 11-years of US and UK injustices, including torture against Shaker Aamer. The time is now to begin releasing those who are already cleared and to give those who aren't a fair trial in a Federal court. Let us all stand up for the rule of law and basic human rights!
