From Progress Illinois | Original Article



















...a demonstration was held on U of C's campus Thursday afternoon to protest John Yoo, who was speaking at the university's law school for a workshop. Yoo, a former Justice Department lawyer under President George W. Bush's administration, co-wrote the so-called "torture memos" drafted after 9/11 that authorized the use of torture techniques in CIA interrogations.

The Chicago chapter of World Can't Wait spearheaded the protest against Yoo, held in front of the U of C Law School.

"It is unconscionable that this unrepentant torture architect is being honored at another prestigious university, here in our city," Chicago World Can't Wait wrote on its website. "John Yoo has no right to speak on any ethical or legal matter - he should be on trial for the 'work' he did for the Bush regime."
