National Lawyers Guild Fundraiser
for 5 Upcoming "Occupy Boston" Political Trials 
An evening of food, drinks and pool!

Since its beginnings the National Lawyers Guild has been an organization that radicals and activists can depend on for legal support when attacked by the government. For nearly 40 years, the NLG Mass Defense Committee has been advising, assisting, and representing activists who are engaged in struggles for political, legal, and social changes to benefit the disfranchised members of the society.

From the moment of the first arrests, the NLG Mass Defense Committee was on the ground to make sure that everyone arrested had effective legal representation. More importantly, the Mass Defense Committee has remained committed to a political defense strategy that ensures that the message of Occupy Boston isn't left at the courthouse doors. 25 of the Occupy defendants are insisting on their 6th Amendment right to trial, and the first of these trials will be held on February 11th at the Boston Municipal Court.

Mass Defense work costs money, and the lawyers who do this work take these cases pro-bono.  Sliding scale of $25.00 to $500.00 for this event
