Support Corrections to the PATRIOT Act
    #1697937 - 07/09/03 12:54 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

From: Matt Howes, National Internet Organizer, ACLU
To: ACLU Action Network Members
Date: July 8, 2003

As Congress returns from its Independence Day break, now is the perfect
time to remind our Representatives and Senators that we must
continually defend the liberties and rights enshrined in our founding principles.
One recent attack on these rights was the USA PATRIOT Act, a bill that
Congress adopted just 45 days after the September 11 tragedies. This
sweeping legislation undercuts many important checks and balances on
government law enforcement and intelligence powers.

The PATRIOT Act and other post-9/11 government actions have created a
groundswell of opposition from all parts of the political spectrum.
Resolutions opposing the PATRIOT Act have been passed in 136 communities
and three states. Taken together, these municipalities and states
represent about 16.5 million people.

Instead of properly addressing the failure of law enforcement to
identify and respond to threats to our safety, the Administration and Members
of Congress rashly passed legislation that infringes on our freedoms
and rights. The PATRIOT Act and other government actions need proper
review and must be brought into line with the Constitution.

movement and to send a free fax to your Members of Congress:
