Support Amy Goodman

As I just wrote, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, was charged with criminal trespass while reporting on a violent attack against Native American men, women and children who were peacefully protesting the desecration of sacred sites during the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.  This is a clear violation of freedom of the press.  She will turn herself in to authorities in North Dakota Monday morning.

We need to speak out when authorities infringe upon our rights.  I urge you to write a letter to the editor of your newspaper.  Following is what I submitted to the Indianapolis Star today.

If we don’t speak out, infringements will continue.  If you don’t speak up, who will?

Thank you for your efforts to protect our freedoms.

First Amendment Attacked

Whatever you might feel about the conflict regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline that is occurring in North Dakota, law enforcement crossed the line when they arrested the reporter, Amy Goodman, from Democracy Now, as she reported from the scene.  This is a clear violation of freedom of the press.  She will turn herself in to authorities Monday morning.  We need to hold authorities accountable when they infringe upon our freedoms.
