The petition for Shaker Aamer' crossed the 100,000 milestone on 12th April. When the petition closed on 20th April 2013, 117,371 people had signed.
We are indebted to all those who signed and whose efforts helped us reach the target on time.
A debate took place on the e-petition at Westminster Hall on Wednesday 24th April.
A new petition by Amnesty International was launched in January 2015, calling on President Obama and the prime minister, David Cameron, to:
I AM NOT IN THE UK, BUT WANT TO SUPPORT SHAKER?
If you're not resident in the UK you can sign the International Petition here.
All supporters can contact the British Foreign Office to demand they act urgently to repatriate Shaker to the UK and sign the new Change petition to release the hunger-striking prisoners in Guantanamo.
