Poets, DJ Revolution, Art Start Project Immortal technique and Tahir are on

the road with the no admission American Civil Liberties Union's College Freedom


The tour is aimed

at educating college students about the climate of the United States after the

September 11 terror attacks on the United States.

"While the

point is to have fun, we can't resist taking this opportunity to inform and

update you on issues that we at the ACLU see as critical: the USA Patriot Act,

racial justice, individual privacy and surveillance," ACLU's executive

director Anthony D. Romero said. "It's crucial that we take care in this

tense post 9/11 climate to protect our hard won civil liberties, especially

now that the government has lowered our protections and redrawn the lines."

The next event

takes place Friday, September 26 at New School University in New York City.

Doors open at 6:00

P.M. and will start with an hour long political forum, which is then followed

by a concert from the participating groups.

The tickets are

free and available on a first come, first serve basis.
