As the law stands, an activist that is convicted of a federal crime (and any demonstrators nearby that may have been arrested) can have the Terrorism Enhancement added to their conviction. This allows further punishments to be added to the original punishment for the crime, and a conviction of “terrorism.” There is a window of opportunity to petition a hearing before the Supreme Court to appeal the newly added Terrorism Enhancement. The appeal could change the law for those in the future wishing to have their voices heard. The filing fees will total $1800. Join in this evening and be part of the $1800 to protect the the civil rights of future activists.
