I'llOffendYou  "There is no justice in following unjust laws" - Aaron Swartz New Jersey forever


@Regrann from @the_boycott_movement - Bills being proposed in #Congress would make it a literal felony for any American to support a #boycott of #Israel, a 12-year-old international protest of the occupation of #Palestinian territories. Both bills currently have wide bipartisan support, with 29 #Republican and 14 #Democratic sponsors in the #Senate, including Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
And the penalties under the Senate bill are staggering. According to the #ACLU, supporting the #Israelboycott would involve “a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum #criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in #prison.” In a letter sent to every senator asking them to oppose the bill, the ACLU explained that "a person whose lack of business ties to Israel is politically motivated would be subject to fines and #imprisonment.” That's up to 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines for your #political beliefs.
While that seems like a pretty open attempt to spit on the #FirstAmendment, criminalizing anti-Israeli sentiment and support for an Israel boycott is becoming common in the West. In France, #activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such #activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any #boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for #Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the #Palestine Exception” to free speech.
This is the latest in a widespread effort to crack down on the right to protest in the U.S. Nearly 20 states have introduced or passed legislation that makes it harder to protest, even as #Americans are finding more and more worth protesting.
So much for Freedom of Speech.

@Regrann from @freedom_faction - The #French government is taking a stance to bolster #vaccinations.
Prime Minister #ÉdouardPhilippe announced in an address to the French Parliament that vaccines unanimously recommended by health authorities will become mandatory starting next year, Newsweek reports.

In #Italy, where more than 2,500 cases of the #measles have been reported this year, #vaccines for 12 diseases were made obligatory by the government in May.

Vaccinations have been at the center of a tense debate over the years. While many parents believe them to be a personal choice, others see it as a public health crisis when children aren’t vaccinated. “Children are still dying of measles,” Philippe said in his speech, according to Newsweek. “In the homeland of [Louis] Pasteur that is not admissible,” he added, referring to the French chemist who was a pioneer in vaccine use.

The #WorldHealthOrganization issued a warning in March about the growing measles epidemic in #Europe. In January alone, over 500 measles cases were reported across the region.

Measles is a leading cause of death for young children, and worldwide 134,200 people perished from the disease in 2015, according to WHO.
After steady progress toward eliminating the disease, “it is of particular concern that measles cases are climbing #in Europe,” Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO’s regional director for the continent, said in the press release. “Today’s travel patterns put no person or country beyond the reach of the measles virus. Outbreaks will continue in Europe, as elsewhere, until every country reaches the level of immunization needed to fully protect their populations.” Although the policies for mandatory vaccinations cover a wide range of contagious diseases, the measles epidemic has been at the forefront of the conversation. “When you see a fraying of community immunity, the contagious diseases are the ones that ... start to come back,” Dr. Paul Offrit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told HuffPost. “And the number one disease that is the canary in the coal mine is the measles.”

The FCC wants to remove net neutrality. This is bad for everyone. This is bad for people in businesses, consumers, and it only benefits the CEOs of the big ISPs. If net neutrality is gone, say goodbye to unlimited music streaming, etc. Removing net neutrality will make it easier to brainwash the people also as these ISPs will then be able to ban and block websites from the public. We should not be charged of how we use the internet. We pay these ISPs monthly bills for internet. Some of us pay a hefty amount of money for fast internet, but if net neutrality is gone, everyone is gonna have to pay a lot more money to access normal sites, or we won't be able to access them at all.

@Regrann from @pcgaming101 - The harsh reality of net neutrality... PLEASE make sure you voice your opinion to save the internet! Don't let big corporate companies take over the internet!
