Our right to assemble and speak freely in protest of the government is under serious threat.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted nearly unanimously (388-3) in favor of H.R. 347, the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, which would impose federal criminal charges, including prison time, against people who participate in protests at locations protected by the Secret Service or identified as being of “national significance” by the Department of Homeland Security.
We can’t let this one fly under the radar. Please call on President Obama today to veto a bill that threatens our free speech and tears at the fabric of our democracy.
