Don't Imprison Amy Goodman or Deia Schlosberg for Journalism

PETITION TEXT: Drop the illogical and illegal charge of "rioting" that you have brought against Amy Goodman for her commission of an act of journalism. Similarly, drop the felony charges you have brought against documentary film maker Deia Schlosberg who filmed activists shutting down pipelines.

Why is this important?

The First Amendment only means anything if it is protected when threatened.
