Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) chief Ethan Nadelmann called on clubbers to continue their fight against America's anti-nightlife bill the RAVE act, this week, after President Bush signed the act into law.

Describing Bush's act as 'a sad day for American freedom', Mr Nadelmann said he drew some comfort from the fact that Senator Joe Biden had 'angrily deplored the fact that his bill faced stiff resistance' and promised the puritanical zealot "We've just begun to fight, Senator Biden."

Mr Nadelman called for people to join the DPA and help them fight 'an aggressive and relentless lobbying campaign to overturn this bad legislation."
