World Beyond War is an active member of the Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases. In January, the Coalition passed a resolution declaring a day of action on February 23, the 115th anniversary of the U.S. government’s seizure of Guantanamo Bay, to protest the U.S. military's continuing illegal occupation of Guantanamo.
Since the success of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, Cuba has insisted on the repeal of the treaty that ceded control of Guantanamo to the U.S. But the U.S. has refused, instead turning Guantanamo into a torture chamber, a prison where the detainees do not have any legal protections.
The Coalition demands that the U.S. government promptly withdraw all its forces and personnel from Guantanamo Bay and immediately declare ALL agreements ceding control of Guantanamo Bay to the United States to be null and void.
