Lynne Stewart in San Francisco

February 4, 2008

The NLGSF will host a reception with Lynne Stewart at Golden Gate University, 536 Mission Street in San Francisco, on February 4 from 5-7 pm in the student lounge.

Earlier in the day the University of San Francisco NLG Chapter will also host Lynne, 12:30, Feb. 4, USF Law at 2130 Fulton St. and Parker St., Kendrick Hall Rm. 103.

Radical human rights attorney Lynne Stewart has been falsely accused of helping terrorists. Convicted in 2006, the government pushed for the full 30 years in prison. However, Lynne Stewart received a 28-month sentence in October 2006, and is free on bail pending appeal.

This is an obvious attempt by the U.S. government to silence dissent, curtail vigorous defense lawyers, and install fear in those who would fight against the U.S. government's racism, seek to help Arabs and Muslims being prosecuted for free speech and defend the rights of all oppressed people.
