MSBA, other bar groups to rally for democracy, rule of law in Pakistan

The American Bar Association is organizing a march tomorow in Washington, D.C., where lawyers wearing black suits will gather in defense of their Pakistani colleagues, and call on President Musharraf to restore democracy in Pakistan. Minnesota lawyers are joining this effort.

The MSBA and other law related organizations have organized a demonstration at the Minnesota Supreme Court tomorrow at noon. If you are able to participate, the MSBA asks that you come to the Minnesota Judicial Center to "stand with us in support of democracy and the rule of law."

The MSBA has arranged for buses to take participants from downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul to the Judicial Center. Buses will leave from downtown Minneapolis at 6th and Nicollet Mall at 11:35 a.m. sharp, and from downtown St. Paul at the (Ramsey County Courthouse) 15 West Kellogg at 11:35 a.m.

The buses will return to the same locations no later than 1:30 p.m. If you wish to ride on the bus, please send an email to efarnsworth@mnbar.org.
