14.6.13

US Supreme Court bans protesting?



"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" - First Amendment


On Thursday the US Supreme Court banned the American people from protesting in or on the grounds of the Court. This flies right in the face of our first Amendment rights of free speech and the right to peacefully assemble. 

The regulation states:

"No person shall engage in a demonstration within the Supreme Court building and grounds. The term “demonstration” includes demonstrations, picketing, speechmaking, marching, holding vigils or religious services and all other like forms of conduct that involve the communication or expression of views or grievances, engaged in by one or more persons, the conduct of which is reasonably likely to draw a crowd or onlookers. The term does not include casual use by visitors or tourists that is not reasonably likely to attract a crowd or onlookers."

This regulation was suggested by the Marshal of the Court and approved by Chief Justice John Roberts and is in effect as of yesterday June 13, 2013.

The official stance of Fresh Political View on the issue you is simply this:

Here are Fresh Political View we fully support our First Amendment rights and feel this to be an outrageous attack on these rights. This decision goes too far and We the People Should demand a change in this policy.
