Back in October we signed a UFPJ petition, which addresses our government’s attempt to curb our rights to protest in Washington, DC as we know it. The proposed rule making would burden and restrict access to public spaces for constitutionally restricted First Amendment activities in DC and would fundamentally undermine democratic freedoms.
Some of our members have been approached by George Edwards a law professor at Indiana University regarding the upcoming publication of a Guantánamo Reader. Stay tuned.
On November 9, PTers came together at the 30th Boston Jewish Film Festival in Brookline, MA for a screening of In Our Son’s Name. The film remains an effective way to spread our message as well as a vehicle to bring PTers together and continues to attract new audiences.
