Event

Press Conference to Call for DOJ Prosecution of Professor John Yoo for Torture

Our message is that prosecution is mandatory under the law. Eric Holder must do his duty and indict and prosecute Yoo.
•We will set up a waterboard and do a mock waterboarding and forced feeding. We will have orange jumpsuits for people to wear.
•Codepink will attempt a citizen’s arrest of John Yoo. Some will attempt to pink slip him.
•Codepink and allies will deliver a message to UC Law School Dean Choudry that we are calling for the prosecution of John Yoo, as well as a UC investigation. We will also demand that UC take Yoo’s endowed chair away from him and that his relationship with UC be severed immediately. We will no longer accept that UC employs a torture enabler to teach law.
• Alumni are especially encouraged to speak at the press conference if they have decided not to donate to UC any longer because of Yoo.
•Codepink and allies gathered over 100 signatures of UC alumni and current students and members of the community on petitions during the FSM 5th Anniversary events. The petitions call for Yoo to be investigated by UC and prosecuted by Eric Holder and the Department of Justice. We will present the petitions to the media and law school at the press conference


The Bay Area Civil Liberties Coalition works actively to empower individual efforts and collective initiatives to support civil rights and defeat illegal government spying.
