Andy will reflect on his past involvement with non-violent direct action movements, his role in the campaign to close down Huntingdon Life Sciences, as well as his current with Sparrow work as a grassroots activism PR consultant.

Know Your Rights! Training at NYU

6:30-8:30pm, Monday, March 21st, 2011
New York University, Kimmel Center
60 Washington Square South (Room 907)

In this climate of ever-increasing surveillance and suppression of progressive movements, it’s important for all activists to protect themselves and and know their rights. Don’t miss this Farm Sanctuary and Cruelty Free NYU sponsored Know Your Rights Training led by Sparrow contributor and attorney Bina Ahmad.  Bina will discuss what’s protected under your rights to free speech, how to respond to law enforcement and FBI encounters, the basics of grand juries, your rights as an immigrant, and why understanding “material support” is vitally important. In addition to the critical information you’ll receive, we will be a screening the video trailer to Will Potter’s forthcoming book Green Is The New Red, giving away 2 free copies of the book, as well as dozens of free copies of the Center for Constitutional Rights booklet If An Agent Knocks.
