HuffingtonPost blogger Coleen Rowley’s daughters will join thousands of activists in Washington, D.C., tomorrow at the Day of Action to Restore Law and Justice. She blogged on about their nascent roles as “citizen journalists” covering the event:

Now they may not look much like Woodward and Bernstein, but you’ve got to start somewhere! It remains to be seen what will result from the long bus ride, giving the fourteen and fifteen year old a couple of lessons on how to run a “Handycam” recorder (with batteries all re-charged and DVDs pre-formatted), and forcing them both to go on the internet for a few minutes to find out about the Military Commissions Act, loss of the right to habeas corpus and what “alternative interrogation techniques” really mean. But I told them they might be covering history in the making.

You can join Meg and Chelsea in D.C. tomorrow, or if you can’t make it in person, the event will be webcast live, and FindHabeas‘s Gabe Rottman will be live-blogging as well. Learn more about the event at
