Been to a Protest? Then you are an economic terrorist!

Leave a comment

Urgent action needed: a proposed new law would allow authorities to charge nonviolent protesters with “economic terrorism.” Click here to sign the petition to stop this!

This is a disaster. A new law proposed by a State Senator in Washington would allow prosecutors to charge protesters with “economic terrorism,” and slap them with serious felony charges that could lead to jail time, just for making their voices heard. [1]

The outrageous proposed bill would make any form of protest that causes an “economic disruption” a class C felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison. It wouldn’t just apply to people who engage in illegal acts or vandalism, it could be used to prosecute any person or group who organizes a protest that authorities deem as “disruptive.” Broadly interpreted, this law could apply to time honored traditions of nonviolent dissent like boycotts and civil disobedience.

Click here to sign the petition demanding lawmakers drop this dangerous attack on our basic right to free speech and assembly.

Charging protesters with terrorism clearly violates the First Amendment and is an attempt to silence legitimate dissent. Please sign the petition telling lawmakers to reject this dangerous legislation.

We need everyone to speak out right now so we can shut down this terrible proposed legislation before it spreads to other states. This affects all of us. Will you sign the petition to stop it?

We need to remain vigilant. No matter who is in power, protecting our right to dissent is imperative for the future of our society.

Japan’s reactors are a threat…so we invade libya?

 While I would love to believe that we invaded Libya for “humanitarian purposes”, the truth is more likely to be far less noble.

Is it just me, or does anyone else out there find it strange that with the nuclear reactors in Japan bellowing out huge streams of smoke, one of them at least in the process of full meltdown and signaling their dwindling stability, and the threat of global radiation contamination, that the UN and our own government chose this time to attack Libya? 

We didn’t attack Tunisia when the people there revolted, and we sure didn’t go into Egypt when those people revolted and we wouldn’t think of attacking Greece as the Greeks rebelled against the thugs running their government, but we will attack Libya under the cover of “protecting humanity” from Ghadafi while the reactors in Japan smolder.  Well when the hell did we get so sanctimonious? I think it was most likely when a few multi-national corporations identified major water and oil resources they would like to hi-jack and Libya refused to co-operate. 

I noticed that when the people of Syria began revolting and “security” forces opened fire on them, we sure didn’t fly to their rescue.  Of course, we were attempting to establish better relations with Syria what with all that oil in their country and of course their strategic location in the mideast that would be of benefit if (when?) we decide to attack other nations in the area. 

“The two were killed when security forces opened fire on Friday on civilians taking part in a peaceful protest demanding political freedoms and an end to corruption in Syria, which has been ruled under emergency laws by President Bashar al-Assad’s Baath Party for nearly half a century.”

But now, perched on the edge of what likely will be a disaster of unthinkable global proportions, we and several other countries under UN orders, attack Libya, cause gosh darn it!  That Ghadafi guy is a bad man and he’s firing on his own people.  Yeah…….like our government has not done that here at home. And our government uses sonic weapons, ADS microwave weapons and a host of other high tech and highly deadly creations intended for no other reason than crowd control of US citizens exercising their constitutional rights.  How quickly we forget Ruby Ridge and Waco.  And how about when our own government used its sonic weapons on protesters at the summit in Philadelphia?  Just to name a few.
