Occupy Legal Skirmishes have Spurred Largest Mobilization of Pro Bono Protest Attorneys Since the Anti-War Movement of the ’60s and ’70s.

Volunteer Attorneys Steer Occupy Protesters Through the Legal System

Washington – As copycat Occupy Wall Street encampments around the country confront the inevitable legal tangles that come with a nationwide sit-in style protest, a growing army of First Amendment-loving lawyers is shepherding the demonstrators through the legal system at no charge.

Growing numbers of protesters are being arrested for trespassing, failure to disperse and disobeying a lawful order, as city after city confronts the question of whether individual rights to free speech and assembly include the right to camp out on public property.

The resulting legal skirmishes have spurred the largest mobilization of pro bono protest attorneys since the anti-war movement of the 1960s and ’70s.

    For which cause pro bono for what? Homes are being stolen what is this really for? We had the 60’s and 70’s already we ended up here and now! The bottom line is to put a stop to the rape of people that did what they were told to do only leading them into a trap!! show me that pro bono!! Or shut the fuck up!! People need help not gossip. More of us than them(banks)we must be certain and not a bunch of people with nothing better to do about a ton of many causes. Shove your bongo drumbs up your ass and get busy. Let us see what they do when it is cold outside! Bongo players.

      @ Matt – Before you go on a rant about the pro-bono being offered to those who are there in OWS you need to take a step back to see the whole picture. Those in OWS are there to represent, not just themselves, but the 99% as a whole….and that means you as well. They are there to show and protest what has been done to the citizens in the form of stealing our homes, raiding our pocketbooks, stealing our jobs to overseas while those who have perpetrated this whole scheme are receiving huge bonus’s. Try being a little more considerate for what this movement stands for because in any war there are always casualties.
