Freedom of Speech & the Press

Amendment I

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Article 18.

“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Article 19.

“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

Stand for these rights everyone, if you don’t then we all lose.

I added this page (and will add info and links as I can) to make sure people understand the importance of free speech, how it is legally protected in the USA and internationally and for the benefit of us all, including this site.

Here is just one resource pertaining to free speech, in time I will add a whole post about it and will add the link here but as with everything, feel free to research on your own.
