THE PATRIOT ACT
AND THE IMPACT ON CIVIL LIBERTIES IN HAWAI`I
Saturday, April 16, 2005 at the Aloha Beach Resort Kaua`i, Pi`ikoi Room (near Wailua River)
The USA Patriot Act I is a 342-page document passed by Congress in
October 2001. More than 210 cities, the states of Alaska, Hawai`i and
Vermont and the National League of Cities have expressed deep unease about the Patriot Act.
Many question whether the Patriot Act effectively keeps us safe without threatening our individual liberties. Is the nation safer with this Act in effect? Will immigrants be paying the highest price? The ACLU is actively monitoring Congress as sections of the Act are due to expire December 2005, and a political battle is growing.
Patrick Taomae, President of American Civil Liberties Union
Board of Directors in Hawai`i and attorney
The meeting is open to the public.
