ACLU Fighting Authoritarian USG Moves

The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a motion to quash a warrant issued to police to search a [Bellingham #NODAPL Coalition] Facebook community page for a broad range of information about a local group engaged in protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline and advocating for environmental justice.

The warrant served on Facebook seeks private, sensitive information about people’s political views and opinions, images of political actions, and personal information, including locations. A hearing on the ACLU’s motion is scheduled for Tuesday morning in Whatcom County Superior Court.
