At the April 28, 2003 Annual Town Meeting, the
citizens of Wellfleet passed the following resolution
by overwhelming voice vote:
ARTICLE 47.  To see if the town will vote to reaffirm
its commitment to protect and preserve Constitutional
and civil rights - including those (relating to
freedom of speech, religion, assembly and privacy;
rights to counsel and due process in judicial
proceedings and protection from unreasonable searches
and seizures) which may be violated or threatened by
various acts and orders enacted at the Federal level
including Executive Orders and provisions of the USA
Patriot Act.  To that end we request that the town,
while opposing terrorism on all levels, support a
policy of unbiased policing and vigilant protection of
civil and Constitutional rights. (by petition)
