Sat – 10/13: Trump has asked his guard dogs to shoo us off “his” lawn… Protect our right to freely assemble at our nation’s capital. Deadline THIS MONDAY – 10/15

(This action originally published 8/17)

SWAMP THEM WITH COMMENTS THIS WEEKEND!

Action #1 – WRITE to protect our right to freely assemble at our National Mall! Deadline Oct 15 at 11:59 PM ET

While Trump is personally attacking critics of his administration with revocations of their security clearances, his administration has quietly lobbed an assault on the free speech of the rest of us. A new proposal has just appeared in the Federal Register originating in the National Park Service, headed by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.  This proposal would CHARGE PROTESTERS for demonstrating in the nation’s Capital!

We’ve stopped their attacks before!
We derailed the imposition of exorbitant fees at our national parks, another Zinke-Production, by flooding them with comments. “I want to thank the American people who made their voices heard through the public comment process on the original fee proposal...”

We can do it again! This time it’s a first amendment right, not a parking fee.
Here’s an idea. Instead of paying millions for a parade at our capital to show off our military, how about protecting our first amendment rights to freely protest there to show off our democracy?

Comment sample: I strongly oppose these proposed changes as they will unnecessarily inhibit the public’s right to freedom of assembly under the First Amendment.
