And this doesn't seem to be some crackpot thing but a serious legaleffort.
If some misconduct happened, it should be documented and investigated.
This maybe the most vapid, poorly thought out, imaginary age-of-Aquarius thing I’ve read since the height of the hippy era. Just reading the description of the events was entertaining … the word “solidarity” was used at least 30 times in the first few pages. If you didn’t bother to read the tract, I recommend it for the sheer entertainment level. It will make your jaw drop and your sides ache.
Union “workers” participated? Yeah.. right …. Those guys work for a living, while the occupiers seem to have nothing much to do.
International law? Since when does that apply to domestic Constitutional action in the US?
If this is an example of “serious legal effort,” those schools need to reevaluate the sanity of their students, and perhaps institute a requirement that students AND professors at law schools demonstrate evidence of at least a minimum touch with both reality and law.
For all I know accusations of "human rights violations" were bound to arise - seeing the people we're talking about here portray themselves as enslaved victims of "the system" and see any action against them as unlawful. I only skimmed over the text but so far I'm yet to find an allegation that could stand up to closer inspection. If anything, we're talking about isolated cases of excess which go down in the sheer scales of the protests and do not warrant broadbrush accusations or accusatory publications like this one.

How about we don't let our anger about those unsubstantiated and self-righteously exaggerated accusations take the better of us?
