ThurAM: Austin Liberty vs 'Patriot' Act(s)
- Your Freedom is Under Fire and You Can Make a Difference --
Regardless of having just been elected, re-elected or in mid-term, anyone who has campaigned for public office must never be allowed to tire of their essential public responsibility....
AustinEXAMPLE: Support the City Council Resolution on the Patriot Act!
The USA Patriot Act gave the government expanded power to invade our privacy and to punish dissent. Local public officials have a distinct role in deciding how local government will respond to the Act, especially how it will spend local tax dollars. Not only is this the Austin City Council's business - it's their elected public duty!
Local public officials have a duty to defend the Bill of Rights, which is an integral & essential part of the United States Constitution that they swore to uphold upon starting their terms of service http://www.constitution.org
The Resolution Will Help Protect the Constitutional Rights of Austinites!
Council will decide on August 14, 2003, whether to pass a resolution which will:
· Place warning signs in our public libraries so that citizens are fully informed of the federal government's ability to collect our library records.
· Require reports to the City Council about actions that our city government is asked to take that would violate our rights.
· Prohibit our police department from "domestic spying" - tracking and monitoring legitimate First Amendment activity.
· Notify state and federal officials of the Resolution.
Take Just a Minute to Urge the City Council to Keep Itself Informed, Give City Staff Guidance, and Protect Our Rights
