Stop Oregon Sentate Bill 1534
Oregon State Senate Bill 1534 is an attack on the people's rights to communicate and organizing online, and it needs to be stopped before it goes out of Committee hearings. Like S.O.P.A or P.I.P.A., this is a veiled attempt to strike at the heart of free speech and freedom of assembly online. This bill turns a misdemeanor into a Felony, if the act was organized via electronic communication. For example, something as harmless as a "Flash Mob" could be a felony. This bill will not only limit people's ability to communicate online, it could also limit internet user's use of Youtube for uploads. Bills like S.O.P.A. have already been rejected by the American People. Senators Whitsett, Atkinson, Ferrioli, George, Johnson, Kruse, Morse, Olsen, starr, Telfer, Verger, and Winters, please withdraw your support from this bill and urge those of your colleagues who do not understand the popular nature of the internet to refrain from interfering with it.
