The conference attendees* decided on some next steps. A national day of action against foreign military bases is being planned for February 23, the anniversary of the US seizing Guantanamo Bay, Cuba through a “perpetual lease” that began in 1903.

The demands will include closing the base and prison in Guantanamo, returning the land to Cuba and ending the US blockade.
