Black Panthers’ and the San Francisco Eight,
“The Abu Ghraib/Guantanamo Connection
Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and “extraordinary rendition” have exposed the ugly reality that the U.S. employs and backs torture in prisons and detention facilities around the world in direct violation of international law. The U.S. has ignored the international outcry and instead has tried to legitimize its use of torture as necessary in its war against terror. The case of the San Francisco 8 extends the effort to make torture an acceptable practice to a domestic case. The prosecution is hoping that what was inadmissible 35 years ago has now been normalized. This case could set an intolerable moral standard and a disastrous legal precedent.”
A call to Petition? (or Arms???)
