Hawaii protest challenges torture memo author Jay Bybee

by Larry Geller

Nearly forgot, Hawaii news made it onto Democracy Now yesterday. In case you missed it in your local paper, it was carried on nearly 800 stations in the US and worldwide:

Torture Memo Author Protested in Hawaii

In Hawaii, more than fifty people gathered outside a federal court building in Honolulu to protest the Bush administration torture memo author Jay Bybee. The demonstration was held as Bybee heard cases in his position as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The group World Can’t Wait has called for protests against Bybee in every city where he hears cases. [Democracy Now, headlines, 5/13/2009]
