Massachusetts NLG Calls For Explanation of Warrantless Searches
Boston, Friday, April 26, 2013: The National Lawyers Guild, Massachusetts
Chapter (NLG) continues to express its sympathy to those who were wounded and to
those who lost family members in the April 15 bombings and in the events of the
following days. We join in the hope for recovery and healing.

While we appreciate that public safety rules usually serve a legitimate purpose in
times of crisis in order to protect and maintain an orderly society, our legal
system includes other important protections derived from the U.S. Constitution.
Those protections must be upheld, especially in the aftermath of crisis. Indeed,
those protections are designed for times of crisis. If constitutional protections
are denied to some of us, they may one day be denied to all of us.

Corvid College Boston is now the Greater Boston Free School
The following announcement is from an email sent by organizers of the Greater Boston Free School. Check out http://corvidcollege.wikidot.com/ for updates and contact information.

We who have been making Corvid College happen, since Eric’s departure in
September, are announcing our departure from Corvid. We have been running
hoedowns, classes, and bringing in new teachers, students and collective
members. Our efforts have been fruitful, but we believe the community
will benefit most from a new organization, if mostly new by name. We have
realized that we wish to fly under a different free school banner.
