Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. AETA. A law that has just PASSED. That is completely unconstitutional. It takes away the rights to protest animal enterprises. It deems such protests as being 'terrorism'. "It spells out penalties for “an offense involving exclusively a nonviolent physical obstruction of an animal enterprise or a business having a connection to, or relationship with, an animal enterprise, that may result in loss of profits but does not result in bodily injury….” In other words any act that causes a loss of profits to animal-exploiting industries (like a reduction in meat consumption) can be treated as terrorism. "
Like a reduction in meat consumption? They're saying I'm a terrorist for being a vegan? What. The. Fuck.
And who the HELL let this law pass? EVERYONE has the rights to boycott/petition against/protest ANYTHING. First amendment rights, people! Freedom of petition! Freedom of assembly!
You know why this goddamned country let that law pass? Because they don't give a DAMNED about what goes on behind the scenes? Because those 'animal enterprises' give THEM money? All of the above?
I am currently looking for anyone/anything/any program/whatever that I can sign up with to PROTEST this. OH MY GODS YES I SAID PROTEST. CALL HOMELAND SECURITY I'M A FUCKING TERRORIST --;
