National Lawyers Guild Opposes Military Action Against Syria
NEW YORK - The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) calls on Congress to vote against the illegal strike on Syria being planned by the administration. NLG president Azadeh Shahshahani said, "The military intervention in Syria is undeniably illegal, and any supposed framework the Obama administration constructs to defend it is based, not upon legality, but upon impunity." The United States is once again poised to violate international and domestic law to impose its will.
