Human Rights vs. the U.S. INjustice System discussion Dec 10th
Human Rights vs. the U.S. INjustice System
Saturday, 12/10 @ 12noon @ Walker
Library, 2880 Hennepin Avenue (Hennepin & Lagoon) Minneapolis, MN
Speakers include:
Michelle Gross, Communities United Against Police Brutality
Larry Johnson, Veterans for Peace
Bruce Nestor, National Lawyers Guild
Jess Sundin, Anti-War Committee
This year, we will mark International Human Rights day with a panel discussion addressing the very criminalization of human rights work. The community has rallied around the AWC as our members are investigated for charges of material support to terrorism. These charges are an attempt to silence voices against US policies of war and militarism, while also making it illegal to extend the hand of friendship to people in countries of conflict. This is evident in the recent conviction of two Somali women, for the crime of sending $8600 in humanitarian aid to Somalia, where
they are from. Our discussion will include several other important cases of attacks on human rights through the legal system: The death penalty, Troy Davis, and Mumia Abu Jamal (now incarcerated for 30 years); Private Bradley Manning, imprisoned while awaiting charges related to the WikiLeaks release of classified documents exposing war crimes in Iraq, among others. Donations requested, no one turned away. Children welcome. Organized by the Anti-War Committee. RSVP on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=138484266257258
