One of BC’s premiere labour and civil rights lawyers, Leo McGrady, provided an information session detailing your rights in a variety of protest situations, the laws around civil disobedience in B.C. and how to prepare for a potentially arrestable situation.
Mr.McGrady has ten years experience giving these workshops and has recently traveled by request to give workshops in First Nations and northern communities in the right of way of the proposed Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipelines.
This event was co-sponsored by the Friends of Carmanah/Walbran and Anarchist Bookfair.
Here is a primer prepared by Leo McGrady, QC, for the workshop this Sunday: GUIDE_FOCW Workshop (Sept 13, 2015)
