United StatesNever before have we as Americans faced such a serious challenge to our liberties. The USA PATRIOT Act was passed on October 26, 2001 in direct response to the events of September 11. The provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act directly attack the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Now the Justice Department is presenting PATRIOT Act II (the Domestic Security Enhancement Act) that will even further erode our rights.No matter what issues you advocate for, no matter what your cause, we face in common a threat to our right to advocate, to organize, and to exercise our civil liberties.
Demand Democracy! is the theme of the National Lawyers Guild national convention to be held in Minneapolis on October 22-26, 2003. The Cry Justice! All People's Activist Conference will be held in Minneapolis concurrent with Demand Democracy!
We invite you to submit workshop proposals, and take part in planning this event - by activists, for activists, to support activism in these difficult times.
