BERKELEY LAW EVENT: Resisting Guantánamo*

Guantanamo is about the body

"Ultimately, the body in extremis must speak.  For the lawyers, our challenge is to listen and to amplify, to be 

in conversation, to speak when our clients cannot, and sometimes to be in silence, so that the clients' 

assertion of humanity might be heard.  The prisoners' resistance thus underscores a far more basic value 

of the lawyers' rights assertion: it, too, is resistance and it, too, can help to keep the prisoners human."

Yesterday's presentation by
Muneer I. Ahmad, Clinical Professor of Law at Yale, was 
inspirational. I encourage everyone to check this guy out.
