Close Guantanamo!

Here you see a photo of the only interesting thing that went on at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia--unless you think photos of Clinton doing the disco & getting sloshed are interesting. Student groups & labor unions protest with a banner that says, “Close Guantanamo”. The US considered the summit contentious since they couldn’t get agreement to exclude Cuba from the next summit meeting. You’d think a country that ran a notorious concentration camp on one end of Cuba (& in several other countries) would be timorous about denouncing a country whose worst offense is training thousands of doctors to serve poor communities around the world. But the US has an oligarchy without shame. (Photo by Ricardo Moraes)
