What Fresh Hell Is This?

January 17, 2006


Imagine a world where Samuel Alito had the final say about our civil liberties:

  • Any Pittsburgh woman planning to terminate an unwanted pregnancy would have to report to her husband first, even if that put her at risk for abuse.

  • Citizens concerned about the environment would have limited access to the courts, and a harder time protecting the Allegheny National Forest.

  • Minorities, people with disabilities, and workers would face a scary uphill battle protecting their health, safety and their jobs.

  • The case against Judge Samuel Alito is overwhelming. He should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Samuel Alito has not shown himself to be a protector of the rights and freedoms Americans hold dear. Please join with groups protecting civil rights at 9:15 AM on Tuesday, January 17th, to make a stand for justice. We will rally on the steps of the City Council building, gather petition signatures, and then march over to Senator Specter's office to hand-deliver him the more than 50,000 signatures of concerned Pennsylvanians who oppose the confirmation of Samuel Alito.

    Where: City Council
    510 City - County Building
    414 Grant St.
    Pittsburgh, PA 15219)

    When: Tuesday, Janauary 17th, 9:15 a.m.

    After the rally and petition gathering, we will march on to
    Specter's office to deliver over 50,000 signatures opposing Alito:

    Regional Enterprise Tower (old Alcoa Building)
    425 Sixth Avenue, Suite 1450
