Proposed law could allow authorities to charge protesters with "economic terrorism"

Evan from Fight For the Future sez, "This is one of those bad ideas we just have to stop before it has time to spread. A GOP State Senator in Washington has proposed a law that would allow authorities to charge people and groups who engage in "disruptive" protests with "economic terrorism." It wouldn't just apply to vandalism or rioting. Broadly interpreted, this proposal could be used to slap felony terrorism charges and jail time on activists who engage in time honored free speech traditions like boycotts, picket lines, and civil disobedience. Right now, this is just a bad idea. Let's keep it that way before it becomes a bad law. Sign and share the petition here.
