How is it possible to tell someone they do not have the right to protest? Is this not the right to freedom of speech? Is it not the right to peaceful assembly?
Here’s What’s Happening Now with the Norman Lowry Case!
June 02, 2012
Norman Lowry, Pennsylvania grandfather and social-justice/anti-war protester has already spent over 1,000 days in prison for his protests. This week Norman Lowry went before a judge who had previously advised him that if he did not stop executing his right to protest, he would imprisoned for years. The judge promised to give him a light sentence if he promised to never execute his right to protest again.
Norman refused to surrender his right to protest and received a sentence of 1 to 7 years in prison.
“Often, including by the court,” he explained, “I have been told that I could achieve so much more on the outside of prison. Yet I have nothing to prove! ‘To say no to evil is perfect revolution.’ (Gandhi) Investing my life in prison, with those who are enslaved there (among the many more we enslave worldwide), makes more sense to me than investing my life with the slave-making/owning society outside of prison.”
Norman Lowry is a hero for his persistant opposition to an evil and corrupt system. Solidarity!
