Talk Nation Radio: NYU Students on Hiring a War Criminal to Teach Human Rights Law

https://soundcloud.com/davidcnswanson/talk-nation-radio-nyu-students-on-hiring-a-war-criminal-to-teach-humanitarian-law

Amanda Bass and Aman Singh are law students at NYU and organizers of a letter condemning the hiring of Harold Koh. Read and sign the letter here:
https://rethinkkoh.wordpress.com

Amanda Bass is a third year student at NYU School of Law where her work has focused on human rights and racial justice. Amanda has interned with the Worker Justice Center of New York, where she assisted workers with wage and hour claims, and with the Southern Center for Human Rights, where she worked on the post-conviction appeal of an individual sentenced to death-in-prison by Alabama courts. Upon graduation from law school, Amanda plans to return to Alabama to work with the Equal Justice Initiative on behalf of prisoners.

Amandeep Singh is a Juris Doctorate candidate at NYU School of Law. Before law school, Amandeep worked for two years in Cairo, Egypt, through the country's tumultuous political experiment with democracy. As a research assistant with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR), a local rights group, Amandeep carried out comparative legal and policy research to support various legislative and constitutional initiatives. His work included developing a long-term legal and policy blueprint for non-discrimination and various legislative and constitutional proposals related to civil liberties and government accountability. He also provided research and support for investigations into the killing of protestors. In addition to his professional experience, Amandeep was involved in multiple grassroots initiatives, including Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment (OpAntiSH), an activist group that documents and responds to organized mob sexual assaults at protest sites, as well as humanitarian assistance efforts for Syrian refugees in Cairo. Amandeep has appeared on Egyptian television and been published for his commentaries on political developments in the Middle East and South Asia. He has lived in Egypt, the Palestinian Territories and India, speaks five languages, and is an avid practitioner of Kundalini Yoga.
