About 20 protesters drew attention to the 11th anniversary of the Guantanamo Bay Prison Sunday with a march and vigil on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Around 12 noon, protesters gathered at either end of the bridge, some wearing orange jumpsuits to evoke images of Guantanamo Bay prisoners. During the vigil, protester May Ann Thomas said many passers-by honked or gave a thumbs-up in support.

The groups organizing the protest, called World Can't Wait and Code Pink, say they are demanding that Guantanamo and other U.S. facilities like Bagram prison be shut down.

"We're all against the crimes of our government," Thomas, "all of us understand Guantanamo represents some of the real crimes our government is committing."

Thomas said that the group Code Pink holds monthly marches on the bridge.
