Whereas, the assembled residents of Rhode Island gathered in Providence on this 13th day of July, 2013, are appalled by the wholesale surveillance being conducted by US police, security agencies and business corporations,

Therefore, be it resolved that we do hereby establish the Rhode Island Coalition to Defend Human and Civil Rights (RICDHCR) in order to:

  1. Publicize among the RI public the extent of law enforcement and corporate surveillance which is underway
  2. Connect this new universal spying system to the ongoing violations of human rights and civil liberties, which have long been suffered by the state’s workers, prisoners, communities of color, women, immigrants and many others
  3. Stand in solidarity with Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Wikileaks and other whistleblowers
  4. Build the broadest possible public movement to oppose the surveillance and defend civil and human rights of all people

    We are a group of independent men running for the scituate town council and our supporters are being threatened by the current administration who we are running against in reference to their 1at amendment.

    Not sure how to take this public would love some help with this.
