Please be sure to take our new “100 Days Action,” urging President-elect Obama to take three essential steps in the first 100 days of his term to close Guantanamo, eradicate torture and end impunity for human rights abuses:
> Announce a plan and date to close Guantanamo;
>Issue an executive order to ban torture and other ill-treatment, as defined under international law;
>Ensure that an independent commission to investigate abuses committed by the U.S. government in its “war on terror” is set up.
These three steps are part of a “checklist” of actions Amnesty International is asking the new U.S. President to take during the first 100 days in office.
