Animal Rights Activists Are Not Terrorists

I remember when the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) came out. Its potential chilling effects on freedom of speech were obvious from the beginning due to its overly broad wording.

The good news, as the video reports, is the constitutionality of the law is now being challenged by a group of activists with the assistance of the Center for Constitutional Rights in Blum v. Holder. They say they have indeed felt that aforementioned chill on their advocacy work. Let’s wish them luck in stemming the eroding tide!
