Keep Free Speech Free!

Take Action Now: Stop Trump's New Laws to Crush Protests in Washington, D.C.

Say No to Trump's Plan to Crush Protests in the Nation's Capital.

New rules proposed by the Trump administration and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke will impose steep fees and costs on demonstrations in Washington, D.C; effectively ban protests on the White House sidewalks; force protesters to pay the costs of barricades erected at police discretion, park ranger wages and overtime, and harm to grass from standing on it; create waiting periods removing any obligation of the government to promptly process or approve permits; restrict and suppress spontaneous demonstrations that respond to breaking events; create hair-triggers allowing police to end protests for the most minor of issues; restrict sound and stagingban long term vigils or protest presences; make protesters pay for expensive "turf covers," among many other radical restrictions of free speech rights.
