U.C. Berkeley Protests Against Professor Who Enabled Torture
On May 17th, Act Against Torture, World Cant Wait, Code Pink, and Vet’s for Peace participated in a demonstration at the 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.

John Yoo is the legal architect of the Bush Regime's torture policies, the war criminal who wrote the legal memos used under the Bush Regime to justify and legalize torture, the Military Commissions Act, and the doctrine of "the unitary power of the executive." In other words, thanks to John Yoo, if George Bush declares someone to be an "enemy combatant," the person can be snatched from their home in the middle of the night, thrown in a dungeon somewhere in the world, and tortured, with no right to a lawyer and no habeas corpus.
