I’ve received the following message about a political rally at Madison’s Capitol Square in support of Fourth Amendment rights.
Those rights are succinctly and clearly expressed in the Constitution:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against un- reasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The press release for the rally appears in full, immediately below:
This event is a Mock Funeral for the 4th U.S. Constitutional Amendment. The 4th Amendment the part of our written Bill of Rights which deals with unreasonable search and seizure.
Since 9-11 we Americans have faced with a steady loss of our digital privacy, violations in the sanctuary of our homes, have been spied upon through our communication networks, and are continually harassed during travel.
Rouse yourself this Sunday, June 30th and join your companions in Madison at the Capitol Square where we can together perform a Mock Funeral of the 4th Amendment in order to formally and peacefully recognize our disapproval with our governments actions.
Here is the official Facebook event link:
Stick around the event to learn about what you can do in order to directly resist these issues including:
Protecting your data with encryption.
Using proxies and anonymous internet browsers to communicate online.
Discovering alternative currencies which you can use to complete transactions privately.
Learn your legal rights when stopped by the police.
Identify how to act when being searched.
How to file a FOIA request to learn what information the government has collected about you.
We are very accepting of any speakers, performers, or booths at the event of any political persuasion, provided they are relevant to these fourth amendment issues.
