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.

    Corporations can exercise “free speech” by pouring zillions into their lapdogs in Congress, but we can’t exercise ours by pressuring Israel? Something’s very smelly here.

    As a member of Jewish Voice for Peace, I support the BDS movement in a peaceful manner and the rights of Palestinians.

    How could something like this even get started? It is a clear violation of freedom of speech.

    Yes let them SPEAK.. They cant speak in Palestine…the Israelis kill them. Our country needs to wake up to the facts these people will never be pleased until the USA makes Israeli give them back the land that was theirs. Israel took their homes, lives, history…….maybe time they were FORCED to give it back.

    For heaven’s sake: If farm workers’ supporters had the right to boycott so workers could unionize and companies could boycott South Africa for apartheid, people and companies should have the right to boycott specific Israeli products or companies to support Palestinians’ civil rights, rights to their own property, and right not to be arbitrarily shot.

    Israel is deeply on the wrong side of international law. Palestinians have human rights like everyone else — which the West refuses to acknowledge. It’s time to change that.
