CodePink Fasting in Cuba.

cuba thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, a day that has historically been known for sitting around the table and sharing a meal with family and friends. But this year, 50 members of a CODEPINK delegation to Guantanamo, Cuba gave up that meal in solidarity with the men in the Guantanamo Bay prison who are being unjustly held. They are calling on Obama to issue an executive order to close Guantanamo prison and return the land to the Cubans.

Will you support them by signing this petition? 

The delegation has spent three days at the Summit for Peace and the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases and meeting with local Cubans. All the delegates are united under common demands: reduce global militarism, close the naval base in Guantanamo, and return the land to the Cubans! Right now they are being welcomed by the Cuban people at a demonstration overlooking the naval base.

This Thanksgiving, as we show gratitude for the improvement in US- Cuba relations among other things, let us listen to the call of the Cuban people to return the Guantanamo base to its rightful owners. Remind President Obama that he has the power to issue an executive order; tell him to close Guantanamo prison and return the land to the Cubans.

We send our gratitude and praise to the members of the CODEPINK delegation in Cuba spending Thanksgiving fasting to show their compassion for the men unjustly imprisoned in Guantanamo.

With thanks and solidarity,
Alli, Andrea, Ariel, Chelsea, Janet, Janna, Jodie, Lisa, Medea, Michaela, Michelle, Nancy and Tighe

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
