Demonstranter blir "Ekonomiska Terrorister" i USA? - Ny lag kan ge 5 års fängelse för alla aktivister

Amerikanska demonstranter och aktivister kan kanske snart titulera sig "Ekonomiska Terrorister" om ett nytt lagförslag går igenom. Senator Doug Ericksen i Washington har under flera månader utarbetat underlaget för den nya lagen som ska ge ökad trygghet i det frihetsälskande Amerika. Olydiga undersåtar som säger emot myndigheter eller företag på offentliga platser skall straffas för ekonomisk terrorism med upp till 5 års fängelse och 100 000 kronor i böter. Låter väl bra..?

Washington Republican proposes charging protestors with 'economic terrorism'
The Hill 2016-11-17
The proposed bill would make protesting a class C felony should it cause any sort of "economic disruption" or "jeopardize human life and property." Such a proposal would mean violators could face five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.

Any group who organizes a protest that is considered disruptive would also be charged with "economic terrorism." The law would not apply to strikes or picketing.

The bill is aimed at protests in the Pacific Northwest, often by environmental activists, that are aimed at shutting down commerce and transportation. [...]

Hi, we have an urgent update about the proposed law in Washington State that would allow authorities to charge nonviolent protesters with “economic terrorism”.

This petition is going viral. More than 70,000 have signed! Click here to take urgent action to defend free speech and the right to dissent!

State Senator Doug Ericksen has now formally introduced the bill, which he’s calling the “Preventing Economic Disruption Act,” for consideration during the 2017 legislative session. [1]
Now this is not just a bad idea, it’s an actual piece of legislation that we have to fight.

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 honored American traditions of nonviolent dissent like boycotts and civil disobedience.

We don’t have to support every protest or every cause, but we cannot allow overly broad legislation to to undermine our Constitutionally protected freedoms.

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

Charging nonviolent protestors with terrorism clearly violates the First Amendment and is an attempt to silence legitimate dissent.

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?
