The Talking Dog

May 12, 2016, R.I.P. Michael

President Emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights Michael Ratner, one of the "founding fathers" of the "Guantanamo bar" which coordinated representation of GTMO detainees, as well as a life-long fighter for human rights, has passed away; Candace has more. I interviewed Michael in 2006.

On issues local, national and international, Michael was a consistent voice for the downtrodden and brought the full might of his legal and rhetorical skills, often representing those who might otherwise be unrepresented.

This is a big loss.
