Following a bomb shell report published by The Guardian last Tuesday and subsequent reporting by independent media, Americans are up in arms over this facility.
Activists using the hashtag #Gitmo2Chicago successfully trended across social media over the weekend, reaching millions of unknowing Americans who didn’t know about Homan Square because the mainstream media refuses to talk about it. Then, on Saturday, activists descended upon Homan Square in an effort to shut it down or at least inspect the facility. We’re still waiting to see if Homan Square will be shut down.
However, fears are growing that Homan Square is not the only facility like this in the country. The likelihood of Chicago being the sole location of due process denying facilities is highly unlikely. We have received unverified tips from readers of multiple suspected locations of other ‘black sites’ throughout the US.
So where else are police using these facilities to disappear and torture people at? Detroit? Texas?
As we noted in an article last week, thanks to 2012-current language in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the federal government can now “legally” indefinitely detain Americans as long as they commit a “belligerent act.”
We ask that anyone with knowledge of these ‘black sites’, wherever they are, please step forward — even anonymously — and blow the whistle on these Bill of Rights destroying facilities. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concrete information regarding this matter. We will protect your identity if you wish to remain anonymous.
Please share this article to get the message out there. It’s time to put an end to these massive overreaches.

Since you’re here…
…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
