Tomorrow marks 10 years since the first prisoners were sent to the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, making it the longest-standing war prison in U.S. history.

To learn how you can amplify the call to close Guantánamo, once and for all, check out our new activist toolkit.

And in case you missed them, be sure to check out the “Gitmo by the Numbers” Infographic that we blogged about yesterday, and our blog post about Lakhdar Boumediene, an innocent man who was imprisoned at Guantánamo for seven and a half years without charge or trial. Tomorrow, we’ll feature a podcast conversation with Mr. Boumediene.

And be sure to let President Obama know that you’re counting on him to make good on his original promise to close Guantánamo and to shut down the un-American and illegal policies that it embodies.
