Residents Turn Out for Civil Liberties Resolution
12/11/2003
At the City Council hearing Wednesday evening, about 40 people spoke insupport of the Civil Liberties Resolution the PBORDC and local ACLU have proposed. In all, about 90 people were present to show support for the resolution. The statements made by concerned residents were truly poignant and the hearing was a dramatic show of solidarity and hope that democracy in America is alive after all!

A final vote on the resolution will take place Monday, December 22 at 10 AM. Mary Beth Buchanan, US Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, which includes Pittsburgh, has been invited to speak in defense of the USA PATRIOT Act on Monday, December 15 at 9:00 AM, at the City County Building in Downtown Pittsburgh. This hearing will also be open to the public.
