Fascism has come to Amerika. Deia Schlosberg was arrested filming the Dakota pipeline protests, and apparently we no longer have a 1st Amendment to the US Constitution.

Josh Fox:

This should send a chill down the spine of every documentary filmmaker and journalist. In my view, the North Dakota police are in violation of the First Amendment, charging a documentary filmmaker with conspiracy rather than viewing her as a reporter/journalist exercising her First Amendment right is unfair, unjust and illegal. We need a show of support right now for Deia’s immense courage and for the First Amendment.‎

Now here is the really bad news and this is why we need you to act right now. This afternoon she was escorted to the courthouse where she was charged with 3 Class A and C felony charges that carry 45 years maximum sentences combines. She has been charged with 2 Class A Felony Charges and 1 Class C Felony Charge; Conspiracy to theft of property, Conspiracy to theft of services, Conspiracy to tampering with or damaging a public service.

    Journalist faces suspension of First Amendment rights (freedom of the press) for reporting on Dakota pipeline protests.

    I would go beyond “scary” to OUTRAGEOUS & CRIMINAL.
