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.

    We call on you to veto this attack on free speech. We all know the origins of it(BDS) but in supporting AB2844 we surrender one of our basic rights under the Constitution. Free speech is a right too precious to lose to partisan politics.

    Why the worldwide hate for Palestinians by those in power? Why the support for apartheid states by those in power? Why not justice for all people?
