The National Lawyers Guild will convene its International Weekend this year in San Juan, Puerto Rico! The International Weekend is an opportunity to learn about the Guild’s international work around the world – from Latin America to Palestine to Turkey to Egypt to the Philippines and more – and in the United States, where the Guild’s International Committee and affiliated Subcommittees works on Environmental Human Rights, Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, the human rights framework and holding the U.S. government accountable. It’s also an opportunity to focus on the struggles of Puerto Rico against U.S. colonialism, odious debt – and celebrate the victory of Oscar Lopez Rivera and the Puerto Rican people’s movement.

The event will begin with a gathering on Thursday evening, 23 February, followed by discussions and presentations until Sunday, 26 February.

The International Weekend will include in-depth presentations on Puerto Rico and other international movements and struggles. It is also an opportunity for business meetings and strategy discussions to direct the future of the Guild’s International work.
