"the right to be free from torture is one of the most fundamental human rights recognized by the global community today." -- Unitarian Universalist Service Committee


On Friday, May 6 at 6:30 p.m. Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fairbanks joins with the ACLU of Alaska to host a potluck, lecture and discussion with Steve Wax, a federal public defender, who will speak on the issue of the moral and legal authority of torture. Author of the book, "Kafka Comes to America," Mr. Wax will discuss how our civil liberties have been eroded by security concerns...

Mr. Wax will be in Fairbanks the annual Alaska Bar Association Convention being held at the Princess Hotel (see www.alaskabar.org for details). On Friday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Mr. Wax will debate Professor John Yoo (author of the controversial "torture memo" under the Bush Administration) in an interactive program of cross-examination and Socratic dialog titled "The Balance Between Security and Civil Liberties in Wartime."
