A historical event has come your way. You have the opportunity to demonstrate your [peaceful] rage against the machine.

If you can’t get to Washington DC, march in your own city. This will be a nationwide event. The world will be watching.

Be a part of it!

This will be a peaceful event. Any attempt to stir a riot or violence will not be tolerated, as as this will compromise the revolution and threatens its participants.

The Military Commissions Act (2006) allows the government to use violent resistance against a riot. Protesters could be seriously injured or even killed by rubber bullets and other suppressive weapons.

In the name of war-on-terror, people detained may receive no trial, no habeas corpus, and could even be taken overseas to secret prisons.

No violence

No rioting

No weapons

Ron Paul Forums: Pittsburgh Rally against Real ID

On March 13th, 2008, The House Intergovernmental Affairs Committee plans public hearings on Real ID in PA.

AFTF, NVCCA, and our local meetup Ron Paul Revolution: Pittsburgh Area Freedom Activists will be sponsoring an anti-Real ID rally and press conference at these hearings. WE THE PEOPLE must show up in huge numbers and make our opposition to Real ID clear.

Please watch this brand new video I have made for more information about Real ID, its status in PA, and this event:

When:
Thursday, March 13, 2008 at 10:00 AM

Where:
University of Pittsburgh- William Pitt Union Ballroom
3959 5th Avenue
Pittsburgh , PA 15213 (Oakland)

Meetup Group: The Ron Paul Revolution: Pittsburgh Area Freedom Activists

Don’t forget about the Anti-Real ID Rally on Thursday, March 13th from 10AM-Noon.

If you feel strongly that we do not need a national ID Card and want the PA legislature to pass the bill that would ban it in this state, this is your chance to get them to do that!

Representatives from the state government will be there and we must give them an up close and personal view of the opposition against Real ID.

The Military Commissions Act‘s stated purpose is:

“To authorize trial by military commission for violations of the law of war, and for other purposes.”

The bill limits captives’ access to habeas corpus and has been suggested to be unconstitutional.

According to Wikipedia: This bill redefines unlawful enemy combatant in such a broad way that it refers to any person who is

engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States.

This makes it possible for US citizens to be designated unlawful enemy combatant because

it could be read to include anyone who has donated money to a charity for orphans in Afghanistan that turns out to have some connection to the Taliban or a person organizing an anti-war protest in Washington, D.C.

As such habeas corpus may be denied to US citizens.

Remember, too, that in the 2006 Military Commissions Act, Congress stripped from all these prisoners any meaningful right to utilize our federal courts, thereby defying our own Supreme Court. – Nat Hentoff (Villiage Voice)

Patrick Leahy, United States Senator, commented about the Act:

“Passing laws that remove the few checks against mistreatment of prisoners will not help us win the battle for the hearts and minds of the generation of young people around the world being recruited by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. Authorizing indefinite detention of anybody the Government designates, without any proceeding and without any recourse—is what our worst critics claim the United States would do, not what American values, traditions and our rule of law would have us do. This is not just a bad bill, this is a dangerous bill.
