NLG-NYC Mass Defense Committee Mobilizes for Occupy Wall Street


Since September 17, the NLG-NYC Mass Defense Committee has provided critical legal support for the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations and encampment. Dozens of NLG-NYC Legal Observers continue to monitor police activity while protestors carry the NLG-NYC hotline number (shown above) on their persons in case of arrest .  NLG-NYC attorneys are currently organizing legal support for over 80 arrestees. The protests have recently received wide spread media coverage in the NYTimes, The East Villager and AMNY after video footage of police kettling and pepper spraying of demonstrators was posted on youtube.
