DEFEND YOUR CIVIL LIBERTIES

SIGN THE PETITION

WHEREAS we recognize the seriousness of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the need to take strong personal actions to combat its contagion and also the need for local communities to provide for adequate medical care for those who are infected,

WHEREAS Governors, mayors and county sheriffs across the nation are declaring states of emergency under the guise of protecting the public from the coronavirus,

WHEREAS these emergencies have been declared without respect to Civil Liberties contained in the First, Second and Fourth Amendments,

WHEREAS the right to peaceable assembly has been nullified by limiting to very small groups and in some cases declaring that violators will be fined and/or incarcerated,

WHEREAS churches are being forced to abandon physical assemblies in favor of online broadcasting that is not available to a vast number of smaller churches in America,

WHEREAS businesses are being forced out of business because of mandated closure for indefinite periods of time,

WHEREAS the Second Amendment is being violated when government executives, using unchecked power granted them to combat the spread of the Coronavirus, use that power to deny citizens their right to purchase arms and/or ammunition, 

WHEREAS the Fourth Amendment is being violated when citizens are not secure "in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures [that] shall not be violated",

WHEREAS all of these actions are preventing citizens from exercising their Unalienable Rights as guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence, including the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, 

WHEREAS all elected leaders take an oath of office to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States",

OUR DEMAND

Furthermore, we demand that all future orders will not violate the U.S. Constitution and that oversight be exercised to ensure that this does not happen either intentionally or inadvertently.

    In Hawai’i we have been cited and arrested for political And religious speech at the Capitol building and for peacefully assembly to redress the government for grievances. The Sheriffs locked the bathrooms and prohibited anyone from setting foot on Capitol property which is public. This was done to keep people on City and. Out you sidewalks fronting the Capitol building and in County Police jurisdiction making us subject to City and County Police tactics and shielding the State Sheriffs.
