  • Prominent Pro-LGBTQ Lawyer Kills Himself To Protest Climate Change

    David Buckel, a prominent LGBTQ civil rights attorney, fatally set himself on fire at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York, early Saturday morning. He was 60 years old. In a suicide note left near his body, Buckel said he had used “fossil fuel” to ignite the fire and wanted his death to symbolize what humans are doing to Earth, the New York Daily News reported. Buckel emailed copies of the note to several news organizations, including the New York Times. “Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather,” Buckel wrote in his note, according to the Times’ copy of the note. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result — my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselve...

  • Lawyer's Lowdown on Gay Marriage: Marilyn Stowe on Sky News

    Marilyn Stowe, the founder of Stowe Family Law, appeared on Sky News on Saturday 29 March to discuss gay marriage in England and Wales. With the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 coming into force and the first gay marriages taking place on the night of Saturday 29 March 2014, here is Marilyn Stowe's family lawyer's overview of the new legislation. For example, did you know that for same sex spouses, adultery cannot be given as the reason for divorce? Case law defines adultery as sexual intercourse between persons of the opposite sex. So a man can be divorced because of a sexual relationship with another woman, but cannot be divorced because of his sexual relationship with another man. Gay rights groups have pointed out that even if this persists, a gay spouse can still petition for d...

Attorney Charles Cooper argued in court that gay unions could undermine marriages between a man and a woman. But now his views are "evolving" - take a look at his quote from journalist Jo Becker's new book "Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality" in the video.

A noted New York City lawyer who made his mark fighting legal battles for gay rights committed suicide Saturday by setting himself on fire in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In a suicide note, David Buckel said he was killing himself to protest climate change. The New York Post reports. A “green” activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights — including in the notorious “Boys Don’t Cry” rape murder case — committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth. David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said. He left the note in a manila envelope marked “To The Police,” recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,” Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times. “My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.” He added, “Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death.” Visitors to the park were horrified when they found his body, and contacted police. “It was just lying there, on its back, knees slightly bent like someone would lie on the sand at the beach,” said Irena Ryjova, 44, a rollerblader who passed by at about 7 a.m., less than an hour after the immolation. “It’s a shock; it’s a shame,” said mom Dana Lall as she shepherded a crowd of Catholic-school kids past the horrific scene, en route to a baseball game. As a senior attorney with Lambda Legal defense, Buckel was a lead lawyer in a 2000 lawsuit on behalf of transgender “Boys Don’t Cry” rape-murder victim Brandon Teena, helping the family recover additional damages from neglectful Nebraska law enforcement. The 1999 movie earned Hilary Swank an Oscar for her portrayal of Teena. “It’s a very important case, not only within Nebraska but nationally,” Buckel had told the Daily Nebraskan newspaper in 2001, ­after helping win an $80,000 judgment. He also fought for the right of gay high school students in Salt Lake City to organize a club, and argued against discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America and the military. “The thoroughness, the detail and the careful reasoning in the opinion means that other courts around the nation will be paying attention,” he said. “The news of David Buckel’s death is heartbreaking,” the group tweeted Saturday night. “This is a tremendous loss for our Lambda Legal family, but also for the entire movement for social justice.” Buckel was also behind a number of cases involving gay rights. In another pivotal case, Buckel won a New Jersey Supreme Court ruling in 2006 acknowledging that gay couples are entitled to the same legal rights and financial benefits as heterosexual married couples. He also fought for the right of gay high-school students in Salt Lake City to organize a club, and argued against discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America and the military. More recently, Buckel worked as an urban gardener and ecologist with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, helping run what he called the largest composting program in the country to use only renewable sources of energy. “There’s no denying that sticking with renewable resources means a lot of elbow grease with pitchforks and shovels,” he wrote in a 2016 article on the Botanic Garden Web site. “But it is incredibly satisfying work.” A 2014 US Department of Agriculture update on efforts by Buckel and others to establish a composting operation at the Brooklyn Navy Yard referred to Buckel as “one of the most experienced community composting experts in New York City.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: quylao0711@gmail.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

April 15 (UPI) -- Nationally known gay rights lawyer David S. Buckel died after setting himself on fire in New York on Saturday morning in a protest against destructive ecological practices. Firefighters found the remains of Buckel, 60, near Brooklyn's Prospect Park when they responded to a blaze in the area at 6:40 a.m., according to the New York Daily News. "I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide," Buckel wrote in a note left near the site where his body was found. "I apologize to you for the mess." Buckel also placed a longer note in an envelope addressed to the police and emailed copies to news outlets including the New York Times, describing the act as a call to action for environmental conservation. "Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather," Buckel wrote. "Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result -- my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves." Friends of Buckel's said he became involved in environmental causes after leaving Lambda Legal, a national organization that fights for the civil rights of lesbian, gay, biual and transgender people, where he served as marriage project director and senior counsel. While working for Lambda Legal he directed several major same- marriage cases in Iowa and New Jersey. "David was an indefatigable attorney and advocate, and also a dedicated and loving friend to so many. He will be remembered for his kindness, devotion, and vision for justice," Lambda Legal said in a statement Saturday. He also served as lead attorney for Brandon Teena, a transgender man who was raped and murdered in Falls City, Neb., in 1993. The case Brandon vs. County of Richardson, in which a Nebraska county sheriff was found liable for failing to protect Teena, was the subject of the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry. In his note Buckel wrote he was in "good health to the final moment" and hoped his death would lead to increased action to protect the environment.

“You’re no different than the people who did not want to share the bathroom with black people during segregated time,” asserts Julie Chovanes, Esq. a transgender female attorney to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Sharp. Airing on the Philadelphia CNN-News affiliate WFMZ-TV, The American Law Journal presents “‘Pronoun Wars’: The Law & Transgender in America.” From schools to businesses, to locker rooms and public restrooms, transgender rights controversies have overtaken America. And the law is struggling to keep up. What impact will the Trump executive order rolling back the Obama administration’s position on transgender rights have on our schools? Why did the Supreme Court ‘punt’ on the Gloucester County School Board v. G.G. Gavin Grimm case? How will the ascension of Hon. Neil Gorsuch’s to the Supreme Court impact the next transgender case? Lawsuits under Title IX and the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause are likely to expand, filed by both cisgender and transgender students. Clip from Program 1715.

"A noted New York City lawyer who made his mark fighting legal battles for gay rights committed suicide Saturday by setting himself on fire in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In a suicide note, David Buckel said he was killing himself to protest climate change. The New York Post reports. A “green” activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights — including in the notorious “Boys Don’t Cry” rape murder case — committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth. David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said. He left the note in a manila envelope marked “To The Police,” recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,” Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times. “My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.” He added, “Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death.” Visitors to the park were horrified when they found his body, and contacted police. “It was just lying there, on its back, knees slightly bent like someone would lie on the sand at the beach,” said Irena Ryjova, 44, a rollerblader who passed by at about 7 a.m., less than an hour after the immolation. “It’s a shock; it’s a shame,” said mom Dana Lall as she shepherded a crowd of Catholic-school kids past the horrific scene, en route to a baseball game. As a senior attorney with Lambda Legal defense, Buckel was a lead lawyer in a 2000 lawsuit on behalf of transgender “Boys Don’t Cry” rape-murder victim Brandon Teena, helping the family recover additional damages from neglectful Nebraska law enforcement. The 1999 movie earned Hilary Swank an Oscar for her portrayal of Teena. “It’s a very important case, not only within Nebraska but nationally,” Buckel had told the Daily Nebraskan newspaper in 2001, ­after helping win an $80,000 judgment. He also fought for the right of gay high school students in Salt Lake City to organize a club, and argued against discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America and the military. “The thoroughness, the detail and the careful reasoning in the opinion means that other courts around the nation will be paying attention,” he said. “The news of David Buckel’s death is heartbreaking,” the group tweeted Saturday night. “This is a tremendous loss for our Lambda Legal family, but also for the entire movement for social justice.”" Article link: https://silenceisconsent.net/gay-rights-lawyer-sets-himself-on-fire-to-protest-climate-change/

Marilyn Stowe, the founder of Stowe Family Law, appeared on Sky News on Saturday 29 March to discuss gay marriage in England and Wales. With the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 coming into force and the first gay marriages taking place on the night of Saturday 29 March 2014, here is Marilyn Stowe's family lawyer's overview of the new legislation. For example, did you know that for same sex spouses, adultery cannot be given as the reason for divorce? Case law defines adultery as sexual intercourse between persons of the opposite sex. So a man can be divorced because of a sexual relationship with another woman, but cannot be divorced because of his sexual relationship with another man. Gay rights groups have pointed out that even if this persists, a gay spouse can still petition for divorce on the basis of their partner's unreasonable behaviour. Technically speaking, however, there is one scenario in which a same sex married couple could divorce because of "adultery". This would be if one spouse entered into a sexual relationship with a member of the opposite sex. In this interview, Marilyn looks at the legal iisues and remedies for same sex married couples across England and Wales.

The lawyer who argued before the Supreme Court against gay marriage in California learned while he was handling the case that his stepdaughter is gay - and is now helping her plan her wedding with another woman. Attorney Charles Cooper argued in court that gay unions could undermine marriages between a man and a woman. But now his views are "evolving" - take a look at his quote from journalist Jo Becker's new book "Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality" in the video. Should we forgive the people who have fought against gay rights and marriage equality once they've come to their senses?
