DENVER: Following President Barack Obama’s announcement of a new plan to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest online progressive advocacy organization, released the following statement:

“Standing against detention without trial and torture is a defense of America’s best ideals,” said ProgressNow Colorado political director Alan Franklin. “The illegal detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba dismays our allies and emboldens our enemies. It is a blight on America’s moral authority and it must close.”

“Colorado stands ready to do our part to right this historic wrong,” said Franklin.
