Join the coalition of musicians and tens of thousands of people who have signed our open letter to Congress. Our veterans are on Capitol Hill, telling Congress to follow through and support President Obama’s call to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. But the right wing wants to play the old game of politics and fear. It’s time for us to stand up and finish what President Obama has started. Congress needs to hear from you.
Here's a short version of the letter we're sending to Congress (you can read the whole letter here):
"For too long the prison at Guantanamo Bay has remained a blight on the American conscience. Guantanamo is a recruiting tool for terrorists that undermines our troops and undermines our security. As veterans of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, we urge you to take immediate action to permanently close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
We stand with them.
Closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay is in the national security interest of America and of the troops we send into harm’s way. We urge you to do so without delay."
