From the NLG

I wanted to remind everyone that the National Lawyers Guild is offering legal observation training this Wednesday in SF from 6-7:30 pm. The announcement is on the bottom of this email message if you didn't see it earlier. This training comes at a critical time, as the Bay Area police are gearing up for the demonstrations that will almost certainly follow the verdict in the Oscar Grant case and there is little doubt that the NLG will be totally swamped.

With the training this Wednesday night, and a possible verdict very soon after, I don't know if anyone will be prepared to observe, but it seems possible. If you've ever been tempted to do this training, now's the time.

Legal Observer Training
Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Become a certified, NLG legal observer! Come to a training at the NLGSF office in San Francisco from 6 - 7:30 PM, Wednesday, June 30. The office is at 558 Capp Street, upstairs.

Legal observers monitor law enforcement at protests, demonstrations, and other political actions involving free speech and/or civil disobedience. Legal observers have collected evidence that has ultimately been helpful to activists facing false charges in criminal court or to activists suing police departments.

NLG legal observers must be trained and have signed a confidentiality agreement. Contact Carlos at carlos [at] nlgsf.org to RSVP or with any questions.
