Activists protest Guantanamo Bay 11th anniversary
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Bay Area human rights activists protested the eleventh anniversary of the opening of the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay on Sunday.
A protester posed as a Guantanamo detainee at the Golden Gate Bridge.
Code Pink and World Can't Wait marched across the bridge. Activists also read the names of the 166 detainees still being held by the United States.
President Obama vowed to close Guantanamo when he campaigned in 2008, but the White House later decided to keep the camp open.
