Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorAct Against Torture
EmailActAgainstTorture [at]
Come to a demonstration at UC Berkeley School of Law graduation to demand that Professor John Yoo, author of the legal memo justifying the Bush administration's use of torture, be fired, disbarred and prosecuted for war crimes.

Where: Hearst Greek Theatre, Berkeley California (east side of campus, on
Galey Rd)
When: Saturday May 17, 2008
10:30 a.m. Boalt Hall, Bancroft & College

PLEASE RSVP by writing to ActAgainstTorture [at] !! We're looking
for a major presence at this event now that John Yoo's full complicity in
attempting to grant the torture-administration immunity has been revealed.

The graduation ceremony starts at nine, but our protest will happen BEFORE
the ceremony, beginning at 8 am when the gates at the Greek Theatre open
to guests (only folks with tickets will be allowed inside, but we'll have
plenty of opportunity to make our point as students, faculty, and families
arrive through the two entrances to the Greek Theatre). During the
ceremony we'll take a coffee break, and will return to line the route
between the Greek Theatre and the Boalt Law School where a reception will
be held at 10:30 AM.

We plan to have the usual orange jump suits & our cage, lots of orange
ribbons that we'll ask people to wear inside the graduation, and excellent
signs for the many of you we expect will come out for this action.

Please come out on May 17th!
