Organize for Thursday, February 17!
The National Executive Committee of the NLG calls on all Guild chapters to organize and to take part in local actions as part of a "National Day of Outrage" in response to yesterday's Lynne Stewart verdict, which we see as an attack not only on our cherished colleague and fellow NLG member but also on all members of the legal community who represent unpopular clients and causes. We are calling for this coordinated day of action to be held next Thursday, February 17 in your cities, towns, and, if you are a law student, at your school. We are putting together a list of suggested actions to take and will send this out ASAP. Please begin making arrangements and stay tuned for more information.
This will be just one step in our ongoing support for Lynne Stewart and in defense of all of those who take on controversial cases.
Only a day? I'm outraged at liberals all year long.
Dupes? How about the entire campus in Ithaca, NY?
You can pretty much count on every nutjob (who isn't a freeper) at the DU to become outraged
They'd get more participants if they called for "National Cauliflower-flavored Ice Cream Day."
Ping me if you see local organizing sites for this. These folks need to be FReeped.
I work for lawyers and I can guarantee you that nobody in our firm will have the time to bother with this.
That, will bring the number way up.
None at Liberty Law, but Harvard and Yale will surely be out in the streets beating up on the very country that millions of Mexicans will risk their lives to come to.
Cool, Lawyers planning a one day work action....
Now if we could just encourage them to extend this to 365 days we would all be better off....
Oh gee golly..........I'd gladly participate in the ........ummmmm.........what'd they call it now............oh yes........"National Day of Outrage", but I think I have to get my tires rotated or something. Call me with the results and I will join vicariously.
National Lawyers Guild:
LYNNE STEWART =
Terrorist Leader OMAR RAHMAN's Messenger Boy to agressive Terrorists
Chino Hills Slasher KEVIN COOPER's Defensive Linebacker that got his 2004 date with a Death Penalty Execution delayed
The Enemy is now Within...
and always has been.
Wow. Looks like all kinds of nutcases are falling apart now.
One of whom is me, and I call for a national day of celebration.
Expect Ramsey Clark to be part of this freak show, assuming he can break away from his Saddam defense work.
Are you kidding? As soon as the ones who would protest realize there are no billable hours involved, they won't give this a second thought.
Hey I think we need them to make it National DECADE of Outrage - no litigation for them for a decade. That'll show us!
All these lawyers gathering in certain spots(in big groups) to support this traitor.
What was it ol' Wille Shakes said?
"...which we see as an attack not only on our cherished colleague and fellow NLG member but also on all members of the legal community who represent unpopular clients and causes."
She wasn't convicted of having unpopular clients...she was convicted of aiding and abetting terrorists by passing along their inf. to other aleged terrorists. 60 years ago she would have been hung for treason.
