UN: Americans’ Right to Protest is in Grave Danger Under Trump

This LINK is to an alarming article that warns of the neo-fascist police state that is now gripping our nation.

An excerpt: “At least 19 U.S. states have introduced bills that attack the right to protest since Donald Trump’s election as president, an ‘alarming and undemocratic’ trend, U.N. human rights investigators said this week.

Maina Kiai and David Kaye, independent U.N. experts on freedom of peaceful assembly and expression respectively, are calling on lawmakers in the United States to stop the ‘alarming’ trend of ‘undemocratic’ anti-protest bills designed to criminalize or impede the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and expression.

‘The trend also threatens to jeopardize one of the United States’ constitutional pillars: free speech,” they said in a statement, calling for action to reverse such legislation.'”
