“The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”– Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote in today’s landmark Supreme Court decision.
You’ve been standing with us in these extraordinary times. Now, it’s time to tell America’s leaders to close Guantánamo, end indefinite detention without charge, and restore the rule of law.
The ACLU stands ready to stop any effort by the Bush administration to get around this decision. Right now, we need your help to make sure this decision marks the beginning of the end of the reprehensible practices that have been carried out in the name of the American people at Guantánamo Bay, including the failed Military Commissions system.
Tell America’s leaders that it’s time to close Guantánamo, end indefinite detention without charge, and restore the rule of law. Sign the ACLU’s Close Guantánamo petition right now.
The tide is turning. Be part of history by acting now to build on the Supreme Court’s clear-cut affirmation of habeas corpus. Because, if we do, this can truly be the beginning of the end for all the lawlessness and injustice we’ve worked so hard to expose and stop.
