Dear The McGlynn

Early this morning, I watched more than 500 riot police descend on the peaceful protestors of Occupy Oakland with tear gas, bean bag rounds and the booming Long Range Acoustic Device. There were dozens of arrests. And Oakland isn’t alone. Occupy movements are under assault in many cities.
Tolerating the violation of our First Amendment rights in one place endangers them everywhere else.

We must have a national movement to defend our
First Amendment rights. Sign the petition.

Send the message to the mayor and police chief of
Oakland and other cities that we have a right to free speech, to free assembly, and to petition our government for a redress of grievances.

These rights do not create themselves. We must defend them vigilantly and eternally.

Join us.

We’re closing in on 20,000 signatures to this petition. Will
you help us get to 30,000 by sharing it with your friends and family and sharing it on Facebook and Twitter?

If you go to this site and sign the petition, there is a link to print a great placard that you can take to your occupy protest: THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS OUR PERMIT
