Bearing Witness, a Plea for Aid

Update 3/25/2015 – Team Harpy retracts their allegations against Joe Murphy.

If you have a personal encounter to share, now is the time to contact #teamharpy. All witnesses deserve to be heard and now is the time.

Please reblog and share widely.

Team Harpy

In a few days, we’ll have our esteemed Plaintiff’s first submission of evidence and such supporting his motion for summary judgement. This means that by January 25th (I think) #teamharpy will have to submit our own document for why we think that the judge should not find in favour of the plaintiff without hearing any evidence.

We still need affidavits for witness statements. The issue, at the moment, is not whether or not we have evidence (we do) but a question of how much. The more witnesses we have, the better off we are.

Specifically, we need people who’ve either been harassed by our esteemed plaintiff or witnessed harassment.

Using the ALA’s own definition, in their Statement Of Appropriate Conduct for ALA conferences, sexual harassment is

Sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention, stalking (physical or virtual), or unsolicited physical contact.

This means any unwelcome sexual attention.
