Subject: Marking 9/11 by Defending Civil Liberties

In Defense of Civil Liberties (ALAA, February 21, 2002)
“As a labor union whose members fight each day for the statutory and constitutional rights of indigent New Yorkers, The Association of Legal Aid Attorneys, UAW Local 2325, is deeply opposed to the Bush administration’s broad assault on precious civil liberties and democratic rights.”

3 p.m. Today: CAIR: NY Coalition to Mark 9/11 with Defense of Civil Liberties
“On Friday, September 9, the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) — along with a coalition of elected officials, faith leaders, civil libertarians, and anti-war and community activists — will mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a news conference and rally in defense of civil liberties on the steps of New York’s City Hall.”

1 p.m., Sun., Sept. 11 — NYC: Emergency Mobilization against Racism, War and Anti-Muslim Bigotry
“Extreme right-wing, racist forces, who last year whipped up a climate of hate against the Islamic Prayer Center at 51 Park Place, have announced ugly new plans for this year — the 10th anniversary of 9/11 — at the same location near the World Trade Center site. This year it is more important than ever that we do not allow these racist hate mongers to be the only voices speaking to the media and to the world.”
