Banner Drop at the Met in NYC

A group of young artists and lawyers for The Blue Lantern Group dropped a banner inside the Met in New York City. There are currently 164 men, 84 that are cleared for release and 14 men entering the 9th month of a hunger strike, all of whom are being force-fed.

The following mic check was presented:
We hope you're enjoying this beautiful art and culture.
Tragically, America also has a culture of torture at Guantanamo Bay.
164 men are detained without end, most have never been charged with a crime.
The torture continues here in US prisons, where 80,000 people waste away in solitary confinement.
Brothers and sisters are torture in our name.
Let's unite to demand justice now!
Thank you for your time, and please join us in the struggle for human rights.

We who believe in Freedom can not rest,
We who believe in Freedom can not rest until it comes!
We gotta' close Guantanamo today,
We gotta' close Guantanamo today, stop torture now!
