Marjorie Cohn Book Release Benefit for GI Resisters

October 25, 2009

An evening to support GI resistance

Sunday, October 25 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the First Congregational Church, 2501 Harrison St, Oakland (across from the new Whole Foods near Lake Merritt).

Marjorie Cohn is president of the National Lawyers Guild and a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she teaches criminal law and procedure, evidence, and international human rights law. She is author of "Cowboy Republic: Six Ways the Bush Gang Has Defied the Law" that 'makes the case for prosecuting Bush officials with exquisite legal detail in straightforward, everyman language.' She and Kathleen Gilberd just published "Rules of Disengagement: The Politics and Honor of Military Dissent" which 'takes the side of US service members who didn't check their conscience -- and their sense of honor -- at the door when they signed up.'

Free event, $5 donation suggested. $20 donation to include the new book "Rules of Disengagement". Wheelchair accessible. Book signing will be held.

This event is a benefit for Courage to Resist in support of military war resisters. Endorsed by Veterans for Peace SF Bay Area Chapter and the National Lawyers Guild SFBA. For more information, contact 510-488-3559.
