We confronted John Yoo today at the University of Virginia!
These interviews were broadcast live on March 19, 2010 by No Lies Radio News.
First at the Miller Center of Public Affairs where I was forcibly removed, then there was a protest march from the Corner to Minor Hall, the location of John Yoo’s second appearance. We marched right down Rte 250 in heavy traffic, no cop escort which was weird, right past the Rotunda. David Swanson, Cindy Sheehan, Ray Mcgovern, and Col. Anne Wright show up for the march, they weren’t at the Miller Center event, but David was. At the second John Yoo speaking event at Minor Hall on the UVA campus, John claimed he “owned” John Stewart of the Daily Show(my paraphrasing). After he got a few laughs with that I piped up with “Did ya put the thumbscrews on him?” (Dead silence, pin drop silence, John Yoo looking perturbed, looking down, signaling security) Yoo: “What?” Me: “Yeah you know thumbscrews, it’s a torture device, it’s a joke, you know? Because torture is so funny.” (cops moving in and I get up) On my way out I express my disgust that the University would host a torture advocate and a war criminal. Cops still move in, I put my hands up and say, “Don’t touch me, I’m leaving.” Some kid in the audience pipes up with “Don’t taze me bro.” Laughs from the audience, John Yoo laughs. I leave. Two young students left behind me and outside Minor Hall express their support, I thank them.
This protest against John Yoo took place at the University of Virginia on Friday, March 19, 2010. It was reported for No Lies Radio News Live by Vic Sadot and the interviews were conducted by Allan Rees.The above post is from Fri Mar-19-10 06:41 PM by arcadian at the democracticunderground.com discussian board
