Judge bybee got to go

Part of a national movement tomorrow
Individuals for Justice
Individuals for Justice
A reminder for all you radicals who think that there should be Justice in our courts:

Individuals for Justice will be in front of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals at 700 SW 6th Ave. tomorrow from 1130-1330. We will join protests around the country for accountability and Justice.

Things are heating up on this issue and many of us are now talking about the over 100 murdered detainees who died during bush/cheney's interrogations. The souls of the dead cry out for Justice and we will do everything in our power to see that the murderers/torturers are brought before an honest and noble judge some how, some way.

Come and join us

Bush is Dead. Long Live the New Bush. 29.May.2009 21:59

"While the dominant media coverage of the U.S. torture apparatus has portrayed these tactics as part of a 'Bush era' system that Obama has now ended, when it comes to the IRF teams, that is simply not true. '[D]etainees live in constant fear of physical violence. Frequent attacks by IRF teams heighten this anxiety and reinforce that violence can be inflicted by the guards at any moment for any perceived infraction, or sometimes without provocation or explanation,' according to CCR."
