NLG Introduces New Know Your Rights Booklet

The National Lawyers Guild is proud to announce a new resource: You Have the Right to Remain Silent: A Know Your Rights Guide for Law Enforcement Encounters.

This 16-page pocket-sized booklet, designed as a companion to our popular publication Operation Backfire: A Survival Guild for Environmental and Animal Rights Activists, is a Know Your Rights guide for activists and others who are contacted by the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security or local law enforcement. It also contains useful information for non-citizens and minors. We hope this publication will satisfy a demand created by the recent FBI raids.

To request free copies of You Have the Right to Remain Silent, call the National Lawyers Guild office at (212) 679-5100, ext. 15 or send an email to You can also download the booklet here.
