"AGAINST THE LAW: DIRECT ACTION, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, AND SOCIAL CHANGE"
FRIDAY, NOV. 4, 4:45-6:15 PM
STANFORD LAW SCHOOL
PALO ALTO, CA
This Friday, Stanford Law School hosts the Shaking the Foundations Conference on Progressive Lawyering. This year's conference, open to the public, will include a panel called "Against the Law: Direct Action, Civil Disobedience, and Social Change." The panel will include Kevin Jonas from the campaign to shut down Huntingdon Life Sciences, who will discuss the role of direct action in the animal rights movement; David Solnit, focusing on anti-war activism and anti-corporate globalization; Ray Ybarra, discussing the mobilized response to the Minuteman Project, and criminal defense attorney Bobbie Stein. This panel and conference represent an important opportunity to build coalitions with other struggles against oppression.
The panel is free and open to the public. However, if you plan to attend several panels, or the keynote lunch with address by the ACLU's national executive director Anthony Romero, please register at [link]. Make sure you specify the vegan option. Lunch registration is on a sliding scale, as low as $10, (but no one turned away for lack of funds). Directions to the law school are available at http://www.law.stanford.edu/about/dirmap/driving.html.
