Tear it Down

The international human-rights giant Amnesty International has launched a campaign to close the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay (where the U.S. holds many prisoners illegally) called Tear It Down. The website brings you to a picture of detainees, and when you sign the pledge, one pixel of the photo is removed.

It takes 50,000 signatures to get rid of the photo and demonstrates how many concerned U.S. citizens want to shut down Guantanamo. I know there are tons of important online pledges you can sign, but I thought this was an interesting and powerful site, and I thought y'all might like to check it out.
