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.

    Individuals and institutions should have the right to protest violations of human rights, such as Israel’s persecution of the people of Palestine. Protesting the action’s of the government of Israel is not anti Semitic

    Please honor the First Amendment which contains both the establishment clause and the right to free speech. And the right to assembly. The right to free press. The right to redress.
