Update: There were 14 arrests of activists from CODEPINK at the White House for protesting Guantanamo on the 100th day of prisoners’ hunger strike. Protesters had deliberately staged themselves on a swath of pavement directly in front of the White House where tourists are allowed but protests are banned. I’ve replaced the livestream link with an archived video from @UnToldCarlise‘s stream.
Prisoners in Guantanamo Bay have been on hunger strike for 100 days now, drawing activists to protest for freedom and justice both online and off. @UnToldCarlisle is livestreaming from the White House, where acts of civil disobedience are expected soon.
Meanwhile, a “twitter storm” has begun under the hashtag #GTMO17, making it one of the top trending topics this morning.
