Art Laffin, a member of our community, was one of the 34 defendants listed in this article at witnesstorture.org

Thirty-four Americans arrested at the Supreme Court on January 11, 2008 were found guilty after a three-day trial which began on Tuesday, May 27th in D.C. Superior Court. The 34 defendants represented themselves, mounting a spirited defense of their First Amendment rights to protest the gross injustice of abuse and indefinite detention of men at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay. All told, 80 people were arrested on January 11th in D.C. as part of an International Day of Action to Shut Down Guantanamo.
