"The MBA is proud to support the National Lawyers Guild, which has called for demonstrations at Pakistani Consulates in Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles in solidarity with lawyers in Pakistan on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
On Nov. 3, Pakistan President Musharraf issued an emergency declaration, Provisional Constitutional Order No. 1 of 2007, which suspends Pakistan 's Constitution. This declaration includes suspension of the right to life and liberty, freedom of speech, assembly and association, and equal protection of the law, all of which are guaranteed by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
MBA President David W. White Jr. will be attending Tuesday's protest and encourages MBA members and their colleagues to join him and the Massachusetts legal community in supporting the immediate release of all those detained after the declaration of a "state of emergency," the immediate reinstatement of the Supreme Court and Provincial High Courts, the immediate revocation of Provisional Constitution Order No. 1 of 2007, and the scheduling of fair and free general elections monitored by international observers.
The demonstrations will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. at the State House in Boston. Court attire requested."
Hopefully there will be a nice turnout and some media coverage.
