Tell Trump: Stop Infringing on our First Amendment Rights

In the United States, we all enjoy the First Amendment right to assemble and protest their government -- at least that’s how it’s supposed to be. And yet, the Trump administration wants to jail pipeline protesters and make demonstrating against their fossil fuel extraction a federal crime.

Trump’s Transportation Department has proposed heaping massive fines and jail time on peaceful demonstrators. While the White House may see nothing wrong with destroying the environment with their polluter-fueled agenda, throwing those who disagree with you in prison is the stuff of dictatorships.

 

Petition Text:

Your proposal to jail pipeline protestors infringes on Americans’ First Amendment rights. I urge you to end the targeting of communities who are exercising their lawful right to protest.
