We, the 1972 Assembly of the American Ethical Union, reaffirm our support of all the rights guaranteed to all the people by the United States Constitution and our opposition to any attempts by federal, state, or local governments to abridge them, such as:
1. The abridgment of religious liberty inherent in compulsory prayer;
2. The violation of freedom of religion and of the press, and of freedom from unreasonable search represented by the surveillance of the records of Beacon Press;
3. Infringement of freedom of assembly through infiltration of lawful groups and the compiling of dossiers on non-criminal activities;
4. Mass arrests without evidence or warrants as occurred in Washington last May;
5. Imprisonment without trial by means of denial of bail, the setting of excessive bail, or "preventive detention" legislation;
6. Wiretapping, electronic "bugging," and other infringement of the right to privacy.
