WEF Protests, NYC February 2, 2002

The World Economic Forum is meeting in NYC February 1st through 4th. Protests are planned and the NLG is doing our best to make sure that everyone is safe.

Legal support is divided in two sections:

The NLG is handling Legal Observing, obtaining permits and representation for the protests. We still need more legal observers, contact mac scott at nlgmember@nlg.org

The local legal workers' collective, the People's Law Collective, is handling Legal Support, the tracking of people arrested (keeping track of who's been arrested and making sure the lawyers know who is inside and where to go)
and liasing between the protestors and the lawyers. Their website also contains information on people's rights and local laws. www.tao.ca/~nycplc nycplc@tao.ca
