Thousands of other people are resisting unlawful, illegal and unjust government action all over the country. 

 

The Keystone XL pipeline resistance has resulted in arrests of over a thousand people in Texas, Oklahoma, Chicago, DC and other venues.

 

Anti-drone resistance has resulted in hundreds of arrests in Syracuse, Nevada, California, DC and Wisconsin. 

 

Hundreds of immigrant activists have been arrested in protests across the country. 

 

Arrests in DC continue to challenge the holding of prisoners in Guantanamo. 

 

Resisters continue to be arrested at nuclear weapon production and deployment sites in California, Washington, Las Vegas, the Pentagon, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

 

The Occupy movement resulted in the arrest of over seven thousand people.

 

So, this July 4th, celebrate the true resistance to unjust and unlawful government.
