The Peace & Justice Center is proud to sponsor a talk at Burlington City Hall TONIGHT, December 10 – International Human Rights Day – at 7:00pm by well known Vermont constitutional and criminal defense attorney David Sleigh.
Sleigh, the founder of Sleigh Law in St. Johnsbury, is an avid defender of civil liberties and prisoner’s rights. He has represented inmates locally, nationally and in Guantanamo Bay. On behalf of his client there, an Afghani citizen, he filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus four years ago. The US has never filed a response.
Watch this short video of a group of PJC staff, interns and volunteers performing on Church Street to encourage people to learn more about Guantanamo Bay and the human rights abuses that continue to happen there.
If you are interested in joining us we may do this again on Monday (December 9th), contact Kyle for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-863-2345 x6). Thank you for watching!
