Scott Schaeffer-Duffy: Darfur and the necessity defense

posted by Mike on May 10th, 2007

Today I talked with Catholic Worker Scott Schaeffer-Duffy, who’s been appealing the conviction of seven protestors who in 2005 blocked the Sudanese embassy in Washington, DC, to protest the Darfur genocide.

All of the briefs and motions have been filed, and with luck there will be “oral argument” of the appeal this summer. Scott talks about why he thinks his group is not guilty, and how he’ll convince the judges of that.

For more info, see Darfur Genocide on Trial.

    Hey Mike,

    It looks like the mp3 link is incorrect here. It points to a Father Gilgun mp3, not SSD. I’m excited to hear it.

    Fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.
