    Picket Line for Civil Liberties Will Greet Nancy Pelosi
    At High-Dollar Fundraiser in North Bay This Saturday

         Declaring that “it’s unacceptable to violate the requirements of the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments for a free press, privacy and due process,” a grassroots coalition based in the North Bay has announced plans to picket at the appearance of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi at a high-dollar fundraiser in Marin County.

    Date and start time of picket protest: Saturday, July 13 at 1:30 p.m.
    Location: Intersection of Golden Gate Ave. and Eucalyptus Rd., Belvedere 94920

         The Coalition for Grassroots Progress is organizing the protest at the Pelosi event, citing the powerful congresswoman’s support for surveillance programs of the National Security Agency. The Associated Press has reported on “her defense of the Obama administration’s classified surveillance of U.S. residents’ phone and Internet records.”
