No Fear of Neo-Fascist AETA!!

by Let's Take It To Court!! Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2006 at 5:03 PM

Following the passing of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), animal rights activists pledge to maintain resistance against animal rights abusers!!

My personal belief is that animal rights activists should (worth the risk to 'reputation') carry on non-violent protests against animal abusers as usual, the first court case that invokes the AETA will be challenged in court on the basis of a violation of freedom of speech..

Both thumbs down for psuedo-Democrat Diane Feinstein who joined up with right wing Republicans in revoking the freedom of speech of people throughout the U.S. with the introduction of the AETA. Both thumbs up to Dennis Kucinich for speaking up for protecting civil liberties by denouncing the AETA!!

"The AETA bill (S 3880) recently passed in the Senate on Sept. 30th, 2006, was introduced by Mr. Inhofe (R-OK), Mrs. Feinstein (D-CA), Mr. Thune (R-SD), and Mr. Isakson (R-GA).

Its counter-part is currently pending in the House (H.R. 4239) and will be voted on sometime in November after congress reconvenes from recess on November 9th.


• AETA risks having a chilling effect on First Amendment protected speech for everyone including law abiding citizens, who risk being tarnished a terrorist even if wrongfully charged. On the chance that a law-abiding citizen wins his/her case, the damage to their reputation will already be done. Appeals often take years."
