Forum Post: Fighting for our Bill of Rights to be restored should be our priority now! If we lose our Bill of Rights, we lose our voice. It will take away our power to protest the injustices we see in our society today.

I think that this movement and all Americans should be out there fighting against the rape of our Bill of Rights. NDAA should not become law! President Obama as well as this lousy Congress has betrayed us. We should also protest for the Repeal of The Patriot Act that clearly violates our first and fourth amendment rights.
And now we have another threat against our freedoms--SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP ACT). Yes, the powers that be really wanted this bill to pass that they put similar bills in the House (SOPA) and in the Senate (PIPA). This bill will end internet freedom and change the internet as we know it.
The biggest supporters of SOPA & Protect ID are of course Hollywood, The Music Industry, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In addition to this list of companies that support these bills. Please see these links, ignore the title of the first one. http://theoriesofconspiracy.com/2011/11/list-of-major-companies-supporting-sopa.htm Also, check out these tech companies that are for SOPA. http://www.sfexaminer.com/politics/congress/2011/12/house-bill-ends-public-financing-elections?page=0%2C0%2C0%2C1 Even NBC supports SOPA and demands their that their partners support it as well.http://www.webpronews.com/nbc-wants-partners-to-support-sopa-or-else-2011-11 We need to keep with the petitions/campaigns, meltdown the Congress phone lines, and engage in mass protesting in front of Congress and in other strategic places. I also think there should be mass boycotts of Hollywood, the Music Industry, and NBC. Hit them where it hurts. We have power--don't forget it. The American people need to fight this or else goodbye freedom!
How do you feel about these awful bills (and law)? How do you think that OWS should deal with this? Please feel free to share your thoughts. We can't just sit here and allow our country to take this Fascist route. It is time to get out their and protest like we never protested before. The American people need to wake up and get out there and make their voices heard.
