Rally to Fight for Our Rights! A kickoff for a week of action to stop Patriot Act II Less than two years after Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act, giving new, sweeping powers to the federal government to conduct investigations and surveillance inside the United States, Attorney General John Ashcroft is pushing for another chilling grab of authority and further diminution of constitutional checks and balances on law enforcement. With the Domestic Security Enhancement Act the Administration would seek to take the Patriot Act's anti-terror powers several steps further. Dubbed “Patriot Act II,” the legislation would grant additional sweeping powers to the government, eliminating or weakening remaining limits on government surveillance, wiretapping, detention and prosecution. FIGHT BACK! Join us at the rally! Learn how you can say NO to Patriot II! When: Monday July 7th from noon to 2 pm Where: the SF Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue for more information: 415-621-2493 Sponsoring organizations (partial list): American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California Amnesty International Blue Triangle Network Justice For New Americans National Lawyers Guild Not in Our Name Refuse & Resist South Alameda Peace & Justice Coalition Various community leaders will discuss different activities planned for the week of July 7. These activities are designed to tell Congress to reject any Patriot II proposal and instead address the Constitutional problems that already exist with the first USA Patriot Act and other actions of the Federal government.
