Whom to contact to state your objections

Four years ago U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, (D-Wis.) Democrat of Wisconsin, was the only one in the upper chamber of Congress to vote “no” on the Patriot Act. Now he is one of the leaders of a small group protesting the bill that would reaffirm this legislation and extend some of its more objectionable parts for another four years.

Protests against the Patriot Act have come into Washington from across the political spectrum. Republicans and Democrats are opposing it, as are Greens, Libertarians and independents. All recognize the threat to our civil liberties and want the Patriot Act stopped. We urge you to join the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and register your objections with lawmakers.

Contact the six-member group that stands opposed and tell them you support their actions and want them to vote against the reauthorization of this bill.

Members of the anti-Patriot Act group are: Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., (202) 224-3841, 331 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510; Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IL, (202) 224-2152, 332 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510; Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, (202) 224-2752, 520 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510; Sen.
