All Who Oppose Gitmo & Torture: Bay Area Rally

Event Description

This Friday at 12:30 we're going to deliver a letter of concern to Dean Chemerinsky making him aware of the community's opposition to John Yoo's complicity in torture and asking him to take action to protect UC Berkeley law students from Yoo's toxic theories and criminal actions.

Meet up in front of the Berkeley Law School, rain or shine!

Prisoners started arriving at Guantanamo on Friday, Jan. 11 2002. This Friday, on the 17th Anniversary of Guantanamo Prison, CODEPINK and allies will hold a rally and press conference at UC Law School to call for closing Gitmo and prosecution of John Yoo for torture. 

Gitmo now holds 40 men, including 5 who have long been cleared for release, and it continues to be a moral stain on our nation as well as enormously expensive. "Maintaining the prison at Guantánamo has cost the American taxpayer $4.8 billion since it opened in 2002, and an average of $454 million every year for the last five years." ACLU, 2017. 

Join us to speak out against this injustice!

    We’ve requested a meeting with UC Berkeley Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky to present a letter of concern regarding John Yoo’s fitness to teach at the law school, and to present information and materials on the many local initiatives calling for John Yoo to be held accountable for his complicity in torture.
