National Conference Call to Abolish the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA)


Add to My Calendar Thursday, November 29, 2007


5:00pm PST / 8:00pm EST
The Coalition to Abolish the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), a joint project of the Center for Constitutional Rights and the Civil Liberties Defense Center, invites you to join this conference call to protect your right to dissent.

Last November, Congress passed and the President signed into law the AETA. Proponents of the bill, including animal-exploiting industry groups, corporations and the politicians that represent them, pushed for the passage of AETA ostensibly to crack down on violent animal and environmental rights extremists—even though there has not been a single injury or death caused by anyone involved in an animal or environmental action. The bill criminalizes legal, constitutionally-protected activity in order to silence political dissent targeting animal/natural resource-abusing industries.

Join us for this call to help build a national grassroots mobilization to demand the AETA be repealed and deemed unconstitutional. With your participation, we hope this Coalition can be a way to more strategically coordinate grassroots outreach and action, legislative advocacy, and media attention to more effectively reverse this erosion of rights.

To join the call, email for the call-in number and code and review the DRAFT Principles of Unity (below).
