An image shared in multiple posts on Facebook and YouTube in February 2021 purports to show prisoners walking by the US Capitol. The posts were shared weeks after Trump supporters stormed the building in Washington DC. The image has been circulated in a misleading context: it shows an Amnesty International protest in 2012 that highlighted human rights abuses at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
