Illegal, Immoral and Just Plain Wrong

By Curt Wechsler 

The "cover your ass" legal reasoning employed by the University of California to protect Berkeley Law professor John Yoo from accountability for his criminal activity at the Department of Justice during the Bush regime fails to silence repudiation of the "enhanced interrogation" policies Yoo's work facilitated. And discredits the process for application of the law school's own ethical standards for teaching. 

Since protesting Yoo's "Torture Memos" at the 2004 Boalt Hall graduation, students have challenged the presence of a war criminal on their faculty. Yet despite numerous letter and petition campaigns to investigate professional misconduct, community vigils in support of torture victims, even a City Council resolution to prosecute the professor for war crimes, school administrators have not only refused to investigate Yoo's performance but have actually promoted his discredited work. 
World Can't Wait stands with Boalt Hall grads and all people of conscience who say NO! to torture in their names.

We refuse to live in a torture state!


World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
