Veto AB 2844

Dear Governor Brown,

We urge you to veto AB 2844, an unconstitutional and costly attack on Californians’ free speech and the movement for Palestinian human rights.

AB 2844 chills free speech by falsely associating legal and time-honored boycotts for human rights with unlawful discrimination, and by creating a vague new crime in the process. The bill could cost California taxpayers over $140 million (Department of Finance estimate) and unknown additional sums for fielding complaints and lawsuits.

Although the title and some of the content of AB 2844 have changed over time, its intent remains the same: to stigmatize and suppress protected political speech, especially advocacy for Palestinian human rights through the nonviolent tactics of boycott, divestment and sanctions.

Stop this attack on Californians’ free speech. Veto AB 2844.

    This is a broadly worded, unconstitutional bill that will waste a lot of money trying to suppress free speech not only of individuals, but also churches that use their purchasing power to end human rights abuses in Israel and everywhere else around the world.

    If you are a man of conscience and have any morals, you will veto this unjust bill. We, the tax payers, are really getting sick to our stomachs to see the blatant corruption of our politicians.

    Above all, it is appalling to see the politicians actually putting the interests of a foreign country above that of our own nation. I think its called treason.

    Capitalism, war-based nationalism, genocide, banks running and ruining the world – in the end it will be death by climate disaster for all.
