An email to my alleged representative, Congressman John Lewis, (D)
What were you thinking in not speaking out against this bill which many are concerned is designed to specifically outlaw lawful and important protests in cities and near conventions? How did this sail through without notice and make its way to the president for signature?
Your historic work in the civil rights movement would not have been possible under laws such as this. Protestors are already subject to arrest by local authorities at their whim and are already being jailed for their decisions to speak up and protest. These arrests are slowly working they way through the courts for recent protests and many are being overturned. 
Why would we need or want a Federal law and prison terms for peaceful protestors, any where, ever?
I am deeply disappointed in you and you honored peers and I'd not thought that possible after some of the unconstitutional authoritarian garbage you have recently passed without reading. This is a new low.
