|Why This Is Important: The House and Senate have both recently passed bills that place crushing new restrictions on the 1st Amendment rights of all Americans. This legislation puts new limitations in place that charge protesters with federal crimes if they protest on federal grounds, at any location in which someone protected by the Secret Service (the President, a former President, a Presidential candidate, or any number of domestic or international figures), or at any location sanctioned as being of "national significance" -- including the Democratic and Republican conventions and even Super Bowl XXXVI. HR 347 and SB 1794 *severely* limit the ability of Americans to exercise their 1st Amendment rights to speech and assembly -- and destroy the long tradition of American protest. We are calling on President Obama to veto this legislation, and to stand up for those who wish to participate|
