UCB Law Graduates Urged to Stand Against Torture Policies Justified by John Yoo
At the May 16th ceremony for UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall law school graduates, World Can't Wait protested against Boalt Hall Law Professor and author of legal justifications for the Bush administration to torture detainees. Graduates were greeted by people calling on them to wear orange ribbons and demand the firing and prosecution of John Yoo. Dozens of demonstrators mingled with graduates and their families along a mile stretch of Berkeley's Piedmont Avenue. The protest against torture called on graduates and now alumni to demand that the UC law school not tolerate torture and those who are apologists for torture policies.
