text of first amendment carved in stone


Climate activists preparing for direct action in September need to know their rights under the First Amendment. But what are those rights and how do the fascists also enlist the First Amendment in defense of their hate campaigns? Mike Snedeker and Jan Haaken talk about free speech and free assembly rights guaranteed by the First Amendment and legal challenges in mobilizing for direct action on climate justice.
