A LEGAL PRECEDENT BEARING DIRECTLY ON
Because of personal
convictions we are
deeply interested in
the principles of free
thought and expression.
The Peace Park tribe
experience with the
principles involved in
It was Peace Park
folks, not the
Community for Creative
Non-Violence, who were
originally charged with
regulation at issue in
Clark. It was also
Peace Park folks who
were first sentenced to
prison for violating
United States v. Thomas
& Thomas, 864 F.2d 188
(1988). For years
Thomas has argued in
court, challenging the
authority of the Clark
principles to suppress
free thought and
et. al. v. United
States, et. al., 696 F.
Supp. 702 (1988),
Thomas, et. al. v. News World Communications, et. al., 681 F. Supp. 55
(1988), Thomas v. Lujan, 791 F. Supp. 321 (1992), Thomas, et. al. v.
Reagan, et. al., S.Ct. No. 92-6732 (1993).
Perhaps Thomas' ineptitude accounts for the courts' unfavorable
decisions, but, unfortunately, those decisions are legal precedent.
TIMES HAVE CHANGED. COURTS DON'T HAVE AS MUCH RESPECT FOR THE BILL OF
RIGHTS AS THEY DID A FEW YEARS AGO. This regulation seems reasonable
to a lot of people. It was proposed under Bush and approved under
Clinton. Even though similar regulations have gone down in court
before, we think it is unrealistic to expect that the judicial system
can be depended upon to uphold fundamental freedoms.
We have lots of documentation relating to these cases and issues, and
feel that mutual understanding in these areas will help build a
foundation for meaningful action. For this reason we have called for
a Legaliaison Council in D.C., second week of July.
FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, EXPRESSION AND ASSEMBLY
IF YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE, LET US KNOW! IF YOU CARE ABOUT THESE ISSUES
WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING, BECAUSE DIVIDED WE FALL!
