WINNIPEG - Join us on January 15, Martin Luther
King Day, to show solidarity with Canada's secret
trial detainees and the demand the closure of
'Guantanamo North' prison in Kingston, Ontario.

January 15 marks day 51 of a hunger strike by
secret trial detainee Mohammad Mahjoub, currently
being denied medical care at Kingston, Ontario's
Guantanamo North facility. Fellow detainees
Mahmoud Jaballah and Hassan Almrei will mark 40
days of their hunger strike, protesting their
conditions of detention under Canada's draconian
"anti-terror" legislation. (See background info on page 2).

Winnipeg's vigil is part of a national day of
action calling for an end to indefinite detention
and deportation to torture faced by the detainees
and by many in our flawed immigration system.
Join us in the loving spirit of radical,
transformative justice that served as a
cornerstone of the nonviolent civil rights movement!
