34 People have been tried and convicted for exercising their first amendent rights to free speech. They were protesting and calling for the closure of the Guantanamo Bay prison, a facility which on every level is in complete violation of the Geneva Convention and international law. Of all places, they were arrested in front of the US Supreme Justice Court Buildings. Many were incredulous that this has happened, and they will soon be sentenced:

Judge Wendell Gardner will sentence the defendants tomorrow (Friday, May 30),
in D.C. Superior Court (courtroom 218, 500 Indiana Ave),
and has indicated that some are likely to receive prison sentences.Anti-Torture Activists Convicted | Witness Against Torture (http://www.witnesstorture.org/node/978)

The message is clear "WE ARE LOSING OUR FREEDOMS". Slowly but surely, one at a time. {" The new world order marches in hooray hooray."} {"Looking like the chinese soliders hooray hooray."} We are no longer free to speak??? This is awful. I thought we were free and not a communist country. They wanna take our guns away our freedom of speech what next??:mad:

Its apparent that we are no longer a free nation. We have realised that.

The reason that this is happening is because after 9/11, the American public decided to give up some of their freedoms to combat terrorism.
