There is a common misperception in the mainstream media that somehow our Civil Liberties situation has changed in a positive way since the election of Barack Obama. In reality, however, many of the same, hotly debated powers that George W. Bush asserted during his presidency have continued unabated (and in some cases, have been massively expanded). Restore Our Rights is a two-day, solutions-workshop and film presentation that seeks to quickly overview our current situation, then encourage solutions-oriented conversation about where we go from here. Our unofficial collaborative organization “Liberties First!” is a collection of unrelated organizations and regular citizens deeply troubled by the lack of conversation on these topics. We are completely nonpartisan and open to all points of view.
Day One: How America Got Her Liberties Back. A quick overview of our current Civil Liberties situation with discussion and activities interspersed. (On Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/256382981154093/ )
Day Two: Experts Speak Out. Film presentation and discussion. Listen to the testimony of engineers, architects and scientists as they discuss “Conspiracy Theories,” revealing scientific critiques that may be surprising. (On Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/512435245442913/ )
