Protesters at DOJ lay flowers for those tortured to death in US custody

On the 26th of June, Amnesty International, Witness Against Torture, and others showed up at the Dept of Justice to denounce continuing US torture. The DOJ was called out not only for refusing today to prosecute torture at Guantanimo Bay and elsewhere but also for explicitly authorising it during the Bush years. During the protest, flowers were laid on the concrete barrier planters outside DOJ memorializing those who died under torture in US custody.

These are the tools of force-feeding in US prisons including but not limited to Guantanimo Bay. They are loaded with Ensure, the goop used at Gitmo to force-feed hunger strikers.
