January 11, 2012 Day 10
Almost a thousand people gathered today in Lafayette Park in Washington D.C. from all over the country and world to mark the 10th anniversary of Guantanamo Bay. It was the largest action against the detention center since its opening in 2002.
The actions began at noon today. I spent the day live streaming so unfortunately, I don’t have any photos to share to you from me. Just five minutes before the rally began at noon, it started lightly raining, but that did not stop us.
You can watch the entire live stream here:
Feeling pretty good today despite having had only 3 hours of sleep last night because my mind was racing with thoughts of what to get done today, or because of the lack of nutrients to the brain. Brain is working not too disjointed today.
We still have another day of protesting to go as do the men in cell blocks 5&6. Judith Kelly, Carmen Trotta, and Brian Hynes receive their sentencing and make their sentencing statements tomorrow morning. We break our fast at 6PM.
