All ages joined the revved-up crowd that assembled in front of the White House and marched to the US Supreme Court amid a cold drizzle.

One demonstrator sat in a cage across the street from the White House, with ankles and wrists shackled, to protest what demonstrators called inhumane treatment of Guantanamo detainees.
Protesters held orange-lettered banners that read "Obama Close Gitmo," while holding umbrellas to keep dry under the persistent rain.
