Stop Torture

The Harvard Anti-Torture Coalition

Day 3 of the Student “Definite Detention” Sit-Out

Posted by stoptorture on April 28th, 2007

Today was the culmination of our effort, starting with a handful of dedicated volunteers sitting in Guantánamo jumpsuits in the cold rain in front of the John Harvard statue in the wee hours. At noon, a group of us, joined by habeas counsel Jerry Cohen of Burns & Levinson, LLP, operated an advocacy table in the student center of the law school on what was notably Alumni Day. This is especially significant given the shameful role some Harvard Law School alumni have played in creating and perpetuating the US torture policy, among them Alberto Gonzales and John Bellinger.

Overall, in about 15 hours of advocacy in the past three days, we collected some 300 individual letters to Congresspersons, which, copied to each Senator, amounts to around 900 letters that will be hand-delivered by habeas counsel in DC next week in their push to restore habeas corpus. Let’s hope someone listens.
Below are some of today’s photos of students and Jerry.
