On the way to the ACLU rally on 6.26.07 we passed the AFT Headquarters. Then saw friends of labor--Sen. Patrick Leahy and ACLU Executive Director, Anthony Romero--at the Day of Action.
"Thousands of Americans have come together to tell their elected officials that the country is on the wrong track and that we need to restore our basic liberties," said Anthony D. Romero, ACLU Executive Director. "The great writ of habeas corpus upon which this great nation was founded must be restored. The accused have the right to due process, and cannot be held indefinitely without charge."
