    President Obama Signs “Anti-Protest” Bill H.R. 347

    President Obama signed bill H.R. 347 (also known as the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011) into law on March 9th, amid numerous protests from the Occupy movement, as well as other agencies. HR 347 is a modification from Senate bill S. 1794, which restricted people from entering or blocking public areas that have been closed off by Secret Service while a person under their protection is passing through. The law also included major public events, such as the Inaguration and Presidential campaigns.

    The new law, which passed the House with a vote of 399-3, extends the original law by adding more protected areas within Washington D.C, and removing the word “willfully,” from the paragraph stating that protesters can be prosecuted if they enter the area “willfully and knowingly.”

    Representative Justin Amash, R-Michigan, explains this change by saying:

    “ The bill expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect its illegal.”

    I heard Judge Napolitano explain this bill:
    He says that anyone who is being guarded by Secret service is covered by this bill and may not be protested. Furthermore he says that the president can order Secret Service protection whenever he wants. So if David Axlerod, for instance, is giving a speech and is guarded you may not post a sign protesting him.

    Note that it also covers Presidential campaigns. You may not protest the president when he is campaigning.

    Bill was signed March 15, 2012.

    Now we can start filling our prisons with political prisoners.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Speech should remain free, we already have laws on the books against criminal trespass, vandalism and many other activities that OWS engaged in.
    This is wrong and will be another one for the courts to strike down.

    Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Yes it does. Add it to the strip searches and we're done as a nation of free people.

    According to the law it's up to the service to decide if protesting is to be punishable in each case. So you know all of the anti-Romney and the seiu demos in support of the little o will be allowed.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    I just wanted to make it clear to some of our more liberal posters that the tactics of OWS don't always fall under free speech.
