Peggy Misch has a posse... and they're keeping the heat on local leaders to resist the Bush Administration's attempts to dismantle civil rights and liberties. In addition to the county Democratic Party, they're talking about taking their resolution to Hillsborough. It has already been passed by the governing bodies of Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and Orange County as well an the N.C. Academy of Trial Lawyers.
Orange County civil liberties activists are working to make a resolution opposing the USA PATRIOT Act component of the official platform of the county's Democratic Party.
The Orange County Bill of Rights Defense committee agreed at a meeting Thursday to begin rallying support for the resolution before local Democratic precincts hold their meetings March 9.
