Join over 20,000 others on this petition to the National Park Service:
"As Americans, we call on you to stop buckling to political pressure and to respect free speech on federal land. Tasing innocent people is repulsive -- and telling Americans they have a right to protest 24 hours a day, but don't have the ability to sleep, is dishonest and wrong. First Amendment rights trump camping rules. Leave Occupy DC alone." Sign on the right.
VIDEO - PARK POLICE TASE OCCUPY DC (Graphic content):
The National Park Service previously said, "We don’t have any issues with these folks" and "The core of their First Amendment activity is that they occupy the site."
But on January 24, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa politicized the Park Service -- holding hearings where he pressured them to evict us under the pretext of enforcing camping regulations. The Park Service quickly buckled.
Take action on the right!
