NLG Passes OLR Resolution at Nat’l Convention


The National Lawyers Guild’s annual convention October 11-14 in Pasadena, California, marked the 75th anniversary of that progressive bar association. A delegation from Puerto Rico attended, including the newly elected president of the Colegio de Abogados, Ana Irma Rivera Lassén, who addressed the plenary, and gave a workshop about political attacks on her organization. The delegation was also recognized at the International Committee’s reception. The NLG adopted a resolution calling for the release of Puerto Rican political prisoners Oscar López Rivera and Avelino and Norberto González Claudio, and committing to work to educate all NLG members regarding the colonial situation of Puerto Rico and the political prisoners who remain in U.S. prisons.
