Center For Constitutional Rights Files RICO Lawsuit Against Abusers

NYC IMC | Represented by the New York City-based Center for Constitutional Rights, victims of torture by US military contractors in Iraq fiiled a lawsuit today against the Titan Corporation of San Diego, California and CACI International of Arlington, Virginia.

According to Jeffrey E. Fogel, Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, “CACI and Titan perpetrated brutal human rights abuses to obtain information, a practice that is not only barbaric but leads to false confessions.  The modern way to describe this is outsourcing torture; in the old days we’d call these people mercenaries.”

RNC overview (please comment and suggest additions)

rncwatcher | When the Republicans come to New York City for their convention, August 30-September 2, they will be greeted by every form of non-violent protest imaginable. Workers, students, parents, immigrants, radicals, people with AIDS, homeless people, anarchists, victims of the drug war, opponents of the Iraq occupation, bicyclists, actors, musicians, and civil disobedients will all be voicing dissent in their particular ways to Bush's policies and the government he represents. All of the city's independent resources - those not controlled by the city or large corporations like ClearChannel - are being mustered for the purpose. People from across the country are coming to join in the protests and cultural events. more...  12 Comments
