In Support of Vaughn Llewellyn Barnett sign now

Vaughn Llewellyn Barnett, who has a law degree and training as a lawyer:
1) has provided legal services for people unable to afford lawyers;
2) has consequently been ordered by a court to cease doing so;
3) has been financially unable to pay the resulting court costs against him;
4) has then attempted to assist poor people without violating the court order;
5) has protested peacefully against international human rights abuses;
6) has therefore been arrested for entering an open gate on public property;
7) has as a result been falsely convicted of assaulting a police officer;
8) has also been swept up in an illegal mass arrest following another protest;
9) has accepted in total 2 months jail time in place of lawfully imposed bail;
10) has incurred an injunction after protesting a wrongful eviction;
11) has spoken out against injustices by lawyers, judges, and public authorities;
12) has now been denied the right to become a lawyer due to all of the above.

Given these facts, we reasonable and right-thinking members of the community believe the following about Mr. Barnetts disputed character and repute, notwithstanding the Law Societys allegations to the contrary:
1) that he indeed appreciates the difference between right and wrong;
2) that he indeed has the moral fibre to do right despite personal consequences;
3) that he does believe in courageously applying the law to prevent harm;
4) that his qualities ands those we consider important for the practice of law;
5) that his activism helps to protect our interest in the administration of justice;
6) that his admission to the bar would be consistent with that public interest;
7) that the decision to deny admission looks to us like a penalty to his activism;
8) that this decision therefore also appears to us to be political discrimination;
9) that this decision thus brings the administration of justice into disrepute.
