As the United States seems to be marching ahead with plans for a
pre-emptive war against Iraq, everyone in the US is subject to new
laws, including the Homeland Security Act and the USA Patriot Act.
How do these laws affect our rights as citizens and activists? What
can we do to preserve and use our constitutional rights?
We invite you to a weekend retreat to explore these questions and
their implications for our country and our lives, facilitated by
three seasoned activists, with local resource people from law
enforcement and legal advocacy.
- We will learn about the new laws, how they affect our
constitutional rights, and how local agencies intend to enforce them.
- We will strategize ways of exercising and protecting our civil
rights, as we work for peace and justice in these times.
- We will build strong "rough weather networks" to overcome
isolation, stay informed, and watch out for each other.
