Lynne Stewart speaking
- Come hear embattled civil rights attorney Lynne Stewart speak on "My
Fight for Justice in Patriot Act USA" on Tuesday, March 6, 7:00 pm
Acclaimed for defending poor people, radicals of color, and
controversial figures, Stewart was sentenced to 28 months in prison
on charges of abetting terrorism in a trial described as "a triumph
of fear over reason" by Mumia Abu-Jamal. Stewart will discuss her
appeal and the inspiration she draws from the legacy of female
resistance to repression.
Co-sponsors: National Lawyers Guild-Portland Chapter, Women's
Resource Center of PSU, Freedom Socialist Party, Student Legal and
