UCSC police and administrative spying on student protesters may be in violation of the following clauses of a resolution the Academic Senate unanimously passed in May, 2004 against the PATRIOT Act:

"d. refrain from engaging in the surveillance of individuals or groups of individuals based on their participation in activities protected by the First Amendment, such as political advocacy, the practice of a religion, unless a valid court order is produced"

...

"f. refrain, whether acting alone or with federal, state, or local law enforcement officers, from collecting or maintaining information about the political, religious or social views, associations or activities of any individual, group, association, organization, corporation, business or partnership unless such information is kept in the ordinary course of business, or unless a valid court order is produced"

...

The resolution also urges to Chancellor to ensure that the Administration "seek periodically from federal authorities the following information":

"c. without disclosing the names of specific surveillance targets or other specific investigative information, the extent of electronic surveillance carried out on the UCSC campus under powers granted in the PATRIOT Act"

and

"d. without disclosing the names of specific surveillance targets or other specific investigative information, the extent to which federal authorities are monitoring political meetings, religious gatherings or other activities protected by the First Amendment within the UCSC campus"

Has the UCSC Faculty Senate and Administration been too caught up trying to quell student radicalism that they have forgetten their own morals and resolutions?
