Regardless of what you think the people held at Guantanamo may have done I believe it is important for all of us as Constitution-respecting Americans to do what we can to make sure the rule of law prevails over the current Administration's dictatorial policies. And Guantanamo is a very important front in that struggle.
Newton Dialogues on Peace & War presents:
Why Should We Care?
Talk by Attorneys Doris Tennant and Ellen Lubell
Newton lawyers Doris Tennant and Ellen Lubell are pro bono representing a Guantanamo detainee who has been held for five years without charges. They have just returned from their first visit there.
Wednesday, April 4, 7 P.M.
Newton Main Library
330 Homer Street, Newton, MA
Hello friends. Please come to this event. Doris Tennant and Ellen Lubell are representing a Guantanamo prisoner pro bono, so they are providing their time at no charge. However, their costs, including their own travel and that of a translator, translator fees, and Freedom of Information Act requests, are running at least $20,000 for this year, and will likely continue at that same pace or more. Most of the other attorneys who are representing Guantanamo detainees are members of large law firms that cover these types of expenses, but in their case the “firm” is just them. If you would like to make a contribution to help them defray costs, it would be much appreciated. Please make your check payable to “Tennant Lubell Detainee Fund.” Your contribution will not be tax-deductible, but they promise to put it to good use to help provide fundamental legal rights to a man who remains in indefinite detention.
