New Yorkers meet Josh at Clinton's Office
The Peace team started the day at the Senate Judiciary Hearing- another Detention Gitmo related hearing.We stood in the back of the room with signs.Free Omar is one message we will promote everyday.Omar Khadr is a 21 year young Canadian citizen being held for over 5 years.
I have been educating people about Omar's situation in hopes we can get him released.
There were a couple of times Liz clapped after a rational witness spoke out regarding the negative web of torture policies that do more to harm our moral high ground than protect US.
After lunch we broke up into groups for lobby efforts on both sides of the house.We continue to educate Congress on H Con Res 362 - the New Yorkers stopped by Senator Clinton's office to meet with Josh.
