Future American lawyers protest Attorney General's speech

"Alberto Gonzales spoke before law students at Georgetown today, justifying illegal, unauthorized surveilance of US citizens, but during the course of his speech the students in class did something pretty ballsy and brave. They got up from their seats and turned their backs to him. (...) additional students came into the room, wearing black cowls and carrying a simple banner, written on a sheet."

  1. It's a very true statement. Things are in a downward spiral for sure.

  2. As I'm sure some of you saw, the Daily Show had the clips from this protest. Good stuff. I'm surprised it didn't get more press. It was great television to watch it unfold.

    I suspect Bush is due for a something similar soon if his town meetings become even a little less scripted.
