The following letter was distributed as part of a leaflet during the protest:

Dear family and friends who have gathered to celebrate our graduation with us:  

Because we oppose torture;

Because individuals and their families continue to suffer from illegal detentions and the long term effects of torture;

Because our leaders must use their power to stop illegal, immoral and inhumane practices; Because those who authorized, conducted or defended US torture programs must be held accountable;

Because only with accountability can we ensure that such horrors are not repeated; Because we in the legal profession have a duty to fight for justice for all people;

We wear orange.

To join us in opposing torture, please pick up an orange armband at any of the entrances. Thank you for your support,

Members of the UNC School of Law Class of 2009 who are taking a stand against torture.
