MundiMuster! Senate leaders will soon move to approve the flag amendment

[via the ACLU] For more than a decade, numerous members of Congress have tried to amend -- with seemingly endless resources -- the U.S. Constitution to give the government the power to prohibit the physical desecration of the American flag.

Civil libertarians have fought back hard with coalitions of veterans, religious leaders and other Americans who believe that such a constitutional amendment would undermine the very principles for which the American flag stands.

While our fight against the proposed amendment has begun to make some headway in recent years, the margins of our victories remain precariously thin. Supporters of the amendment continue to spend millions of dollars on lobbying candidates and members of Congress.

Now, Senate leaders are taking advantage of several Senators’ absence due to presidential campaigns, sickness or the aftermath of Hurricane Frances to slip this amendment through.

Protect the Constitution!
