Protest Video from Canada – Casseroles – Montréal, May 24, 2012 on Vimeo

There are many laws in the USA that are deteriorating our freedoms.  Through the National Defense Authorization Act (or NDAA), the U.S. government is incrementally making it illegal to protest.  For example, it is through this law that it is illegal to protest near government officials,  the very people who need to hear the protests regardless of what those protests might be.

In Quebec, Canada, the government passed an “emergency law.”  This law makes it illegal to protest without permission from the government.  People can be fined extraordinary amounts for protesting without government permission.  So,what did Canadians do?  They took to the streets.  It didn’t matter that the protests that caused the laws were perhaps not agreed upon by everyone.  Tens of thousands of people went into the streets to protest the infringement of their rights.  You can see it in the video below.

What do we do in the USA?  Go back to sleep…
