Pun Plamondon at DePaul University March 20, 6:00. "Civil Liberties During Wartime" Free, public welcome 2320 N Kenmore room 251.Pun Plamondon, noted Ottawa storyteller and author of LOST FROM THE OTTAWA; The Story of the Journey Back, will be chairing a panel discussion on March 20th at 6 pm. Plamondon’s story is particularly timely.As a radical activist during the 1960’s and ‘70’s Plamondon was the co-founder of the militant White Panther Party. Charged with bombing a clandestine CIA office in Ann Arbor in 1969, he went underground and was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Captured a year later, his trial revealed that the Nixon administration had conducted widespread illegal wiretapping of American citizens.Plamondon’s case ended-up in the US Supreme Court which ruled that wiretapping without a warrant was illegal and violated the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. The Nixon administration was forced to curtail its warrantless wiretapping program.Today Larry is bringing the message of defeat to the Bush Regime: "We’re in deep shit." Plamondon said. "Our only hope is to mobilize millions of freedom loving Americans to put pressure on Congress to impeach or otherwise drive Bush from office." Plamondon continued, "Remember, in 1972 Nixon was elected with the greatest landslide ever. Two years later he was forced from office. This is doable, perhaps someone will give him access to an intern."
