Yay, Austin City Council.

Tonight, the Austin City Council passed a resolution regarding the Partiot Act. This was the last of three long meetings to discuss this issue. The resolution at the table basically states that "fundemental rights granted by the United States Constitution are threatened by actions taken at the federal level, notably by passage of certain sections of the USA Patriot Act." The implementation of this resolution would affirm that "the City of Austin has been and remains absolutely commited to the protection of civil rights and civil liberties for all of its residents and affirms its commitment to embody democracy and to embrace, defend and uphold the inalienable rights and fundemental liberties granted to under United States and Texas Constitutions."

Fuckin' A. Take that, hippies!
