Today we put up our poster on the Cravath law firm. The firm and its partners have for decades played a major role in the Law School’s fundraising projects, posing a possible issue of corruption or conflict of interest, as we’ve discussed on our “About” page. Here’s a text copy:
What part of subjecting black South African employees to intimidation, detention, and torture is not acting in furtherance of Apartheid? How about creating a computer database just to deprive black South Africans of citizenship and restrict their freedom of movement? Cravath — defending Chrysler, IBM, and other Apartheid supporters since, uh, 2004.
See In re South African Apartheid Litigation, 617 F. Supp. 2d 228 (S.D.N.Y. 2009)
Can we talk about who firms actually defend?
Firmly refuse. An Unbound Campaign.
