Petition Tag - civil rights
We have many useless laws in effect at Federal and State levels. Every time our governments meet they pass new laws taking our rights away. The people should have to vote to put laws into effect, and how to spend our tax money, not the corrupt politicians.
Spend some of our wasted tax money setting up Polls over the internet for the people to vote on the bills and laws and let our government serve us again.
We the people want to vote before our money gets spent and our rights get taken away! This would reduce political corruptness.
There are currently 31 other states that have an early voting option for its citizens, and it has worked well to provide more equitable access to the election process. It is time for Pennsylvania to empower its citizens, too.
Early voting makes it easier to vote, and this means more people exercise their right. Research by Curtis Gans, Director of the Committee for the Study of the American Electorate, shows that in the 11 states that had early voting in both 2002 and 2004, turnout increased by an aggregate average of 7.2 percentage points.
This measure will also simplify election administration for all of Pennsylvania's 67 counties by allowing more time to process ballots, lifting strain on voting systems that occurs on Election Day, eliminating serpentine election day lines, and reducing the number of poll workers needed while allowing more time for the poll workers who remain to become familiar with new or updated voting systems.
While the law currently provides protections for citizens to be excused from their work to vote on election day, for too many hard-working Pennsylvanians that is not realistic. Limited transportation, some occupations, family obligations, emergencies, or physical conditions can prevent voters from standing for an hour or more in line at their polling place on election days.
All citizens must have the opportunity to cast their ballot protected by our government.
63. Free Rose Kabuye
Rose Kabuye one of our heroes & warrior was arrested & detained at Frankfurt airport after a French judge had issued a European arrest warrant on the 9th-11-08.
We suspect that this arrest is connected to allegations of shooting down a presidential plane in 1994.
Proposition 8 has trampled on the rights of fellow human beings based solely on sexual preference. The US Constitution guarantees "...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...", yet it has been denied to people simply because of their sexual orientation.
This is too much like African Americans being denied the rights guaranteed to whites in the 1950s. If people of the straight preference are allowed three, four, five and more marriages, then people who genuinely love each other should be able to spend the rest to their lives together. Actual people have been DENIED 1400 benefits that would come from being married.
Some of these benefits would ease the problems that the dragging economy has caused. Please reconsider this hateful proposition!
[petition will close 21 December 2008 Please get as many of your friends that support this to sign. Thank you!! NO TO H8!!]
Alvin Ridley and his family have endured unnecessary persecution and prosecution by the Catoosa county Georgia and the Ringgold, Georgia law enforcement and elected government officials. Alvin Ridley has had his van, his business Ridley's Television, Appliance and Furniture Sales, and his building unconstitutionally seized by Catoosa county Georgia government officials and he has never been compensated for the wrongful seizure of his property and he has been denied his constitutionally protected right to due process of law.
Please take a moment and sign this petition in support of Alvin Ridley to help him get his van, his business Ridley's Television, Appliance and Furniture Sales, and his building restored back in Alvin Ridley's possession so he can reopen his business to help people in need in the United States of America and our American veterans.
Your support of this petition and of Alvin Ridley, who is an honorable injured American veteran, is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and attention to this very important matter.
Have the right to live with my mother and still have the right to use Section 8 funding as my mother being the landlord.
Families should have the right to live where they want to live under the disability's rights act of 1977.
The petition demands--through the voices of as many names as are on the list--further action and examination into the effects of slavery and, finally, a statement not only by American representatives, but by all Americans who believe in freedom, that this country will never accept slavery within its borders, and will do all it can to discourage it elsewhere.
Canada Post is treating our workers like second class citizens
RSMC's (Rural and surburban mail carriers) do a larger size route than a letter carriers walk, and deliver all their parcels, all with our own vehicle and pay their own gas. Fuel prices has sky rocketed, without the corporation paying to RSMCʼs for delivery. But, Canada Post will gladly pay for another employee or contractors (No proper clearances ) to deliver the letter carriers parcels, with a Canada Post vehicle and a gas card. If that doesn't hurt enough, they also get monthly bonuses for their flyers that they deliver, but we are paid less per flyer, less time to deliver, and the RSMCʼs aren't even paid for all the flyers they do. But wait, it gets worse. Then, this spring in some facilities, each letter carrier was called over the loud speaker to come in and get their annual bonus cheque; while the RSMC's got to hear, and, watch one by one, go in to get their cheques.
Postal workers received the Canada Corporation magazine that says, how well the corporation did in cut backs last year, and announcing on the front cover how great the bonuses were for everyone,........everyone? Really? And again...they can't do a thing about this because CPC doesnʼt give a shit about the RSMC's especially, very little about their other workers either, just they have a better collective agreement from before the new CEO took over.
Prior to 2004 the RSMCʼs were not employees of Canada Post, they held individual contracts with the corporation. Since 2004 gas prices have risen dramatically, and the RSMCʼs who perform this work, are finding it increasingly difficult to perform their work, and cover the increased costs of fuel.
RSMCʼs receive no sick days
In most outlets RSMCʼs must provide their own replacement worker if they wish to take their holidays, and CPC holds up the
security clearances for replacements, sometimes taking 9 months to be completed. Effectively denying RSMCʼs their annual leave, as CPC threatens discipline if they take it without obtaining a replacement.
RSMCʼs are not entitled to overtime, CPC says they have to authorize the Overtime, but, they always refuse to.
Many RSMCʼs are making less than minimum wage, subsidizing CPC for soaring fuel costs. CPC charges a fuel surcharge to customers due to the increase in fuel costs, but keep it, and has announced they are requesting a 2 cent raise in stamps, and another 2 cent raise in 2 years. They claim the raise is required due to the price of fuel, and operating costs. Operating costs they donʼt pay RSMCʼs out of their raises CPC gets from the public.
Many RSMCʼs are evaluated below the 8 hours but in effect work 8 hours, and some are evaluated at 8 hours and do 12 or 14 hours, as they are on piece work.
60 % of RSMCʼs are women.
Many RSMCʼs when they exercise their right to complain are disciplines and/or fired, noting bogus reasons for their dismissal.
Many RSMCʼs are quitting because ,they just canʼt afford to deliver the mail anymore, as they are subsidizing CPC for delivery.
Some of these routes are being filled by Contractors..
We Need to stir up more interest from everybody about the treatment of RSMCʼS, it might be
useful to remind them that, the CEO of Canada Post looks at the RSMCʼS, to where she wants to bring our postal system, profit for the large corporations and ignore the general publics needs
This is another reason why it is so vitally important to support the RSMC,s in their struggle, because it is also really, all Canadians struggle to stop the CEOʼs efforts.
The current statute of limitations on Civil Rights are discriminatory, they favor the employer and the corporations and deny the victim of racial discrimination the opportunity to seek justice and fairness.
IN most all cases of racial discrimination investigated by the EEOC the investigation is a long drawn out process where the wheel of justice and due process is delayed by the defendant/Employer and their legal council. The employer’s legal councils will deliberately delay the process to allow for statute of limitations to run out. This denies the victims their rights to file criminals complaints against witnesses who commit the crimes of perjury, fraud, obstruction of justice and so on.
In almost all cases the due process and wheel of justice is purposely slowed down by the employer’s legal council that allows the statute of limitations to run out that deny the victim the opportunity to file criminal complaint.
Corporations and employers benefit from short 3 and 5 years statute of limitations and it places the victim of racial discrimination at a great disadvantage. There is absolutely no benefit to the victim by having a 3 and 5 year statute of limitations. Congress and the Senate have willfully placed these short statute of limitations to favor the corporations and employers and place minorities at great disadvantage. This is a willful racial discrimination by the Congress and the Senate.
There is not a single benefit for the minorities. They claim these short statute of limitations will require the victims to bring their charges before the case gets too old but in reality it is a scam Congress and the Senate has pulled on minorities because it really places victims of discrimination at a disadvantage and allows corporations and employers to get away committing crimes of perjury, fraud, and obstruction of justice.
There should be no limit on racial discrimination victims and absolutely no statute of limitations on civil rights violations.
Please support this petition and urge your elected representatives to remove all statute of limitations on civil rights violations.
Mukesh Malhotra, his wife Falguni (Fal) Malhotra and son Jish Malhotra have been in Australia for the past 8 years.
It is sad to note that their application for Permanent Resident Visa has been rejected by Department of Immigration and Migration Review Tribunal, because their son Jish has Autism. With due respect to the constraints these departments operate under, they do not have any powers to consider the other contributions Mukesh, his wife Fal have made and will continue to make to Australia; plus the strengths that Jish has because of Autism or otherwise.
Mukesh is a post graduate from University of New South Wales and is a Project Manager in construction industry.
His wife Fal is a graduate in commerce with experience as executive assistant and high school teacher. However, Fal has decided (and it gives her great pleasure and satisfaction) to use her hands-on experinece with Jish, to help other children with Autism. Having helped the children with Autism voluntarily for couple of years, Fal is currently working as a teacher's aide at ASPECT's Terrigal School for Children with Autism and helping many more children.
Jish is 12 years old and has started high school at Narara Valley High School this year as a full fee paying student in one of their special needs class. Jish is independent in his daily activities and good at computers and singing. Jish also won a High Commendation prize in one of the categories at Central Coast Eisteddfod singing competion in August 2007. You can view Jish's singing performance by copying and pasting the following links in your browser.
A final appeal is being made to the Minister for Immigration who has the power to waive the health criteria and grant Permanent Resident status to the Malhotra family.
You are all requested to provide your valuable support for the above.
71. Reclaim your DNA
The UK police now have more DNA samples than any other country. Over 7% of the UK's population is on the National DNA database.
Although the assumption is that by holding the DNA profiles of more individuals on the database, more crimes will be solved, there is no evidence to support this. However, evidence of abuse of the information held on the police database is increasing, including its use for controversial genetic research without consent.
In Scotland the law is different and DNA cannot be kept permanently from innocent people.
About a million people who have not been convicted of any offence, including at least a hundred thousand children, are now on the National DNA Database.
Keeping innocent people's DNA profiles on a Database permanently is an infringement of fundamental human rights.
CITY BY CITY: UNITY IS KEY
PUT AN END TO GENTRIFICATION AS ETHNIC CLEANSING
UNITE TO SAVE THE SLAVE I & SLAVE II
THEATER & CULTURAL CENTER IN BROOKLYN NY
HISTORIC AND LANDMARK THEATERS & CULTURAL CENTERS, WHICH NEED TO BE OFFICIALLY CLASSIFIED AS SUCH. THESE OUTREACH, ORGANIZING, NON-PROFIT AND SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTERS HAVE SERVED AS CAPACITY BUILDING INCUBATORS FOR DECADES. THE OWNER OF THE AFORMENTIONED IS ATTORNEY AND RETIRED JUDGE JOHN PHILLIPS, A BLACK MAN, WHO IS SUFFERING INJUSTICE AT THE HANDS OF THE BLACK ROBES, HE ONCE WORE.
WE MUST STOP GENTRIFICATION AS A MEANS OF ETHNIC, SOCIO-ECONOMIC, AND SENIOR CLEANSING. THE PEOPLE SUFFERING THESE INJUSTICES SHOULD NOT BE LEFT TO FIGHT THESE INJUSTICE ALONE.
WE MUST ORGANIZE FOR TRUTH, FREEDOM, JUSTICE, AND EQUALITY. THE PLIGHT OF ATTORNEY JOHN PHILLIPS IS A PRECEDENT SETTING CASE. IF LEGAL INJUSTICE CAN BE SO RAMPANT AND UNCHECKED WITH ONE OF HIS ESTEEMED STATUS, HAVING SERVED AS A JUDGE FOR OVER 17 YEARS, THEN HE SHALL BE THE GLASS CEILING OF JUSTICE THAT ANY OTHER PERSON OF COLOR OR SENIOR CITIZEN CAN EXPECT.
ACCORDING TO MEDICAL TESTIMONY, ON THE RECORD IN COURT, ATTORNEY PHILLIPS DID NOT NEED A GUARDIAN, HE NEEDED ASSISTANCE, AS DO MOST PEOPLE WHO LEAD BUSY LIVES,AS THEY GET OLDER. HOME ATTENDANTS TO ASSIST WITH CLEANING AND COOKING WOULD BE A LESS INTRUSIVE SUPPORT FOR ATTORNEY JOHN PHILLIPS.
HE IS THE FIRST RETIRED JUDGE TO SUFFER BEING STRONG ARMED INTO A GUARDIANSHIP.
THOUGH THE INITIAL GUARDIANSHIP PROCEEDINGS ALLEGE THAT THEY WERE BEING COMMENCED TO PROTECT HIS PROPERTY AND ASSETS, 9 OF THE 12 PROPERTIES HAVE BEEN SOLD FOR UNDER VALUE. THE SALES OF HIS PROPERTIES SHOULD BE SET ASIDE. PRESENTLY THERE IS AN OVER-ESTIMATE BY THE GUARDIAN OF PROPERTY FOR IRS OBLIGATIONS, OF WHICH HE SHOULD NOT BE RESPONSIBLE, SINCE THE SALES SHOULD BE SET ASIDE.
WE ARE CALLING FOR A MASS MOBILIZATION OF VOLUNTEERS. THIS MUST BE A NATIONAL EFFORT TO ADDRESS SENIOR INJUSTICE PREVENTION. WE MUST ORGANIZE AGAINST GENTRIFICATION AS ETHNIC AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC CLEANSING.
UNITY IS KEY. UNITY IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY HYDROGEN OR ATOMIC BOMB.
California Democrats have a long tradition of supporting civil rights for all individuals.
As such, Marriage Equality (same sex marriage) is a civil rights issue of which explicit support belongs in the California Democratic Party platform.
Other state Democratic Parties, such as Iowa and Massachusetts, explicitly state in their party platforms that they support equal marital rights for all consenting adults, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identification.
It is time for the California Democratic Party to add its commitment to marriage equality to the CDP Party Platform.
I think that there should be a holiday to celebrate the great work of Cesar Chavez as a great civil rights leader for the Hispanic community.
Why is it that we get Martin Luther King Junior's birthday off and Cesar Chavez? Martin Luther King Junior was one of the best civil right leaders. He helped end segregation between African Americans and Americans. Cesar Chavez helped end segregation against Hispanics and Americans. He also helped the migrant workers get fair wages.
I have a great amount of respect for Martin Luther King Junior, but I also think that the Hispanic community of this country deserve a holiday in which they can say I helped change America.
In conclusion, I think March 31st should be a national holiday to honor the magnificent work of Cesar Chavez
According to prosecutors, a 20 year old mentally ill, African-American woman, by the name of Megan Williams, was allegedly kidnapped and held captive in a trailer in Logan County, West Virginia for over a week. There the police discovered Megan Williams with black eyes, stab wounds and missing hair.
Williams' told the police her captors forced her to consume dog and rat feces, drink her own urine as well as drink from a toilet. Criminal complaints also state that her captors told her she was being tormented for being black and called her "nigger" while assaulting her.
Her alleged captors are all white. They have been named as 49-year-old Frankie Brewster, her son, Bobby R. Brewster, 24, Karen Burton, 46, her daughter Alisha Burton, 23, George A. Messer, 27 and 20-year-old Danny J. Combs.
The FBI has been consulted as to whether or not to handle this as a hate crime.
Logan County prosecutors say they have not ruled out hate-crimes charges but are focusing on the counts already filed, including some such as kidnapping and sexual assault that have tougher maximum sentences. Federal prosecutors, meanwhile, STILL have not sought civil-rights charges.
DID YOU KNOW?
The victim was charged by authorities in 3 local West Virginia counties on 11 misdemeanor counts of writing worthless checks, 1 misdemeanor of obtaining property under false pretenses, and 1felony count of failure to appear in Circuit Court? She was released on $8,000 bond afterwards.
DO THEY KNOW?
Shes mentally disabled & can't be held accountable for writing false checks to a Dominos Pizza (& other various places)?
HEADLINES READ: CHARGES ADDED IN TORTURE RAPE; VICTIM FACE BAD CHECK COUNTS
AS IF SHE HASN'T FACED ENOUGH, THEY WANT TO BRAND HER AS A CRIMINAL?? WHY WAS THIS SO IMPORTANT TO CHARGE HER RIGHT AFTER HER ORDEAL??
It is 2007 and race relations in this country are still being treated as if it were like its 1807!
UPDATE as of OCTOBER 4, 2007:
U.S. Attorney Charles T. Miller has said he WILL NOT FILE civil rights charges. Logan County Prosecutor Brian Abraham has said state hate crime charges could be DIFFICULT TO PROVE because Williams had a “social relationship” with Brewster going back at least several months.
Last fall in Jena, Louisiana, the day after two Black high school students sat beneath the "white tree" on their campus, nooses were hung from the tree. When the superintendent dismissed the nooses as a "prank," more Black students sat under the tree in protest. The District Attorney then came to the school accompanied by the town's police and demanded that the students end their protest, telling them, "I can be your best friend or your worst enemy... I can take away your lives with a stroke of my pen."
A series of white-on-black incidents of violence followed, and the DA did nothing. But when a white student was beaten up in a schoolyard fight, the DA responded by charging six black students with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
It's a story that reads like one from the Jim Crow era, when judges, lawyers and all-white juries used the justice system to keep blacks in "their place"--but it's happening today. The families of these young men are fighting back, but the odds are stacked against them. Together, we can make sure their story is told, that this becomes an issue for the Governor of Louisiana, and that justice is provided for the Jena 6. It starts now.
The noose-hanging incident and the DA's visit to the school set the stage for everything that followed. Racial tension escalated over the next couple of months, and on November 30, the main academic building of Jena High School was burned down in an unsolved fire. Later the same weekend, a black student was beaten up by white students at a party. The next day, black students at a convenience store were threatened by a young white man with a shotgun. They wrestled the gun from him and ran away. While no charges were filed against the white man, the students were arrested for the theft of the gun.
That Monday at school, a white student, who had been a vocal supporter of the students who hung the nooses, taunted the black student who was beaten up at the off-campus party and allegedly called several black students "nigger." After lunch, he was knocked down, punched and kicked by black students. He was taken to the hospital but was released and was well enough to go to a social event that evening.3
Six Black Jena High students, Robert Bailey (17), Theo Shaw (17), Carwin Jones (18), Bryant Purvis (17), Mychal Bell (16) and an unidentified minor, were expelled from school, arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder. Bail was set so high -- between $70,000 and $138,000 -- that the boys were left in prison for months as families went deep into debt to release them.4
The first trial ended last month, and Mychal Bell, who has been in prison since December, was convicted of aggravated battery and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery (both felonies) by an all-white jury in a trial where his public defender called no witnesses. During his trial, Mychal's parents were ordered not to speak to the media and the court prohibited protests from taking place near the courtroom or where the judge could see them.
Mychal is scheduled to be sentenced on July 31st, and could go to jail for 22 years.5 Theo Shaw's trial is next. He will finally make bail this week.
The Jena Six are lucky to have parents and loved ones who are fighting tooth and nail to free them. They have been threatened but they are standing strong. We know that if the families have to go it alone, their sons will be a long time coming home. They will lose precious years to Jena's outrageous attempt to maintain a racist status quo. But if we act now, we can make a difference.
Please add your voice to the voices of these families in Jena, and help bring Mychal, Theo, Robert, Carwin, and Bryant home. By clicking below, you can demand that Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco get involved to make sure that justice is served for Mychal Bell, and that DA Reed Walters drop the charges against the 5 boys who have not yet gone to trial.
While it is a constitutional right in America, and a governed law in many other countries, despite popular belief Freedom of Speech is not a right in Australia.

UPDATE FROM THE FREEDOMJOURNAL
(“Big Ralph: Reflections of a Black Police Chief” discusses Race and Diversity published in 1997)
Beloved there is nothing in this life that will remain the same forever. So shall the wicked dry up as the dry grass and weeds of a drought stricken land? Then as we look out upon the horizon there extends the righteous farther than the eye can see. These times are good as the wretched of the earth not only see sunshine but also see and feel the heat of summer and the breath of the mighty Wind.
Take this for your thought and mediation realizing that evil will come to end in time. If not sooner later as there is a Day of Judgment.
Peace be unto you. We bear witness that the signs of the times are changing as quick and swift as the Wind blows. The recent Supreme Court decision regarding race and diversity is a concern that the FreedomJournal/Psyche Z Publishing has thoroughly written about twenty years hence.
We declare that our research on this subject and specifically the integrationist philosophy of the Civil Rights Movement (NAACP) has caused these agencies and their supporters to be in the vanguard of our forty-year battle against CENSORSHIP. The book “Big Ralph: Reflections of a Black Police Chief” therefore has been the most CENSORED BOOK IN AMERICA mainly from our analysis because of the succinct discussion of race and diversity and the insightful and truthful critique of the Civil Rights Movement and it’s leadership.
We come not to lift ourselves up are to be puffed up. But we declare that our research is the only existing detailed discussion of the factors that related to the pertinent issues of school integration and the hidden and untold story regarding the realities of Brown v. Board of Education.
SO BEFORE YOU ACCEPT THE ROLE OF A CENSOR AT LEAST READ WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CENSORING. YOU MAY FIND THAT WHAT WE HAVE DISCLOSED MAKES SENSE AND YOU AGREE WITH OUR ASSESSMENT.
Peace and Paradise,
Carl A Patton, writing for the FeedomJournal July 3, 2007 in service to the Lord of Lord’s, King of King’s Christ Jesus and as God is our witness we only seek an equal opportunity.
79. Free Dexter!
I and my partner have recently spent 6 months in Amsterdam, Holland .
Whilst over there we had the fortune to find the most perfect Jack Russell. Knowing that we had to come back to the UK in 6months time we fully researched how bring him back would work.
The pet’s scheme run by DEFRA explained what he would need.
We then complied with the rules - micro chipped, de flea and wormed. He was also vaccinated against rabies whilst over in Amsterdam which, has one of the lowest cases of Rabies in Europe, in the world! It was in fact one of the first countries to be added to the DEFRA pet passport scheme.
Upon calling the quarantine facility to arrange the stay of our dog we where informed that it didn't matter that he had already spent two months prior to touch down in the United Kingdom with the rabies vaccination in his system. The vaccination he had is the same as he would have in the United Kingdom . But he still had to have a vaccination once he got to the quarantine facilities in the UK .
We would like to know why this is as we have tried and failed to get any answer other than the rhetoric of ‘it’s the law’ as to why our dog has to now have the rabies vaccination in his system for eight months, not six (which has already been proven to be far longer than it takes for the rabies to show itself once vaccination has occurred). Please refer to the DEFRA website for the studies regarding this.
The simple fact that once he’s in quarantine he does not receive a blood test that it is just down to the kennel operatives to notice any difference in his behavioral pattern means that this prolonged stay in quarantine cannot be justified. As clever as he is, he’s still only a canine and he is completely unable to hide any of the signs of rabies, if he would of contracted it before going into quarantine he would still be showing signs of it now.
None of it makes any sense. Indeed the large numbers of civil servants we have spoken to regarding this have agreed that it makes no sense.
Why should we have to continue the heart ache of being separated from him?
If Britain is country of animal lovers, how can its government elected by us the people continue to enforce quarantine laws which have no scientific, national security or health benefit to any of us, yourself included?
A small number of residents of the City of Marion responded to a survey that was recently undertaken into rates. Many phone calls however, were received in regard to the need for a survey as the Elected Members who are to make the decisions are just that - elected to make those decisions.
Whereas, 28.5% of the 18-24 age group in the United States are smokers, supporting a smokefree Ball State would ostracize an extremely large group of people from campus life.
The Conservative Federal Government has cut $5,000,000 from the Status of Women Department.
We live in a world where violence is increasing. There are more wars being fought around the world then at any other point in history.
MY goal is to get as many signatures from people around the world who would like to tell our international representatives to stand up for life and recognise that killing another human being is never necessary, justified or even legal under any circumstance.
I want the United Nations to know and remember what they represent; Peace.
We need to make a stand and go on record as telling the United Nations war does not work and we want it to end.

Wichita Public Schools operates its schools under an agreement forged with the former department of Health, Education and Welfare and currently overseen by the Office for Civil Rights.
To comply with Title IV and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, USD 259 adopted and continue to implement strategies that eliminate racially segregated schools.
The district has determined an Assigned Attendance Area that encompasses Adams, Buckner Performing Arts Magnet, Spaght Accelerated Magnet Academy and Isely Traditional Magnet, L'Ouverture Computer Technology Magnet, Mueller and Washington Elementary Schools. African American students bused outside the AAA are assigned to schools based on home or childcare address for all grade levels.
Help us to ensure that the town of Warwick, NY is next on the list of cities, towns, counties & states to pass a resolution to protect the civil liberties of their residents!
The USA PATRIOT Act, passed by Congress in the wake of 9/11 terrorist attacks, grants powers to law enforcement and intelligence gathering authoriites that can and are being used to undermine and otherwise violate the US Constitution.
On Aug. 14, 7:30, we present a petition to the Warwick Town Board requesting passage of a resolution against provisions of the Act which are a direct threat to our liberties. Please join us!
End the USA Homeland Security Act. Protect our Civil Rights and privacy. There are other ways to protect our Nation. First one right then them all. I understand the concern to protect our Nation but what has been done to restore our rights?
