DEFEND FREE SPEECH in MA
In Opposition to All Forms of Censorship, and in Support of the Rights Guaranteed
by The First Amendment of The United States Constitution
WHEREAS: Our constitutional republic is deeply rooted in the guiding First Amendment principle of free speech; and
WHEREAS: The success of our constitutional republic is contingent upon the protection of our First Amendment rights guaranteeing freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely; and
WHEREAS: Autocratic and heavily centralized governments have been proven throughout the course of recorded history to rely on censorship and intimidation as the means of silencing free speech and government opposition, and to preserve the authority of the powerful at the expense of the citizen; and
WHEREAS: Recent events point to Congress ceding that authority to unelected technology corporations holding a monopoly on discourse in the online public square; and
WHEREAS: Actions committed by a select cabal of technology corporations included the censorship of press reports and commentary critical of a presidential candidate, the silencing of a duly-elected president, and cooperation resulting in the systematic shutdown of alternative social media platform(s); and
WHEREAS: Congress has shown an unwillingness to commit to guaranteeing and ensuring First Amendment protections for all in the online public square, while ceding such authority to unelected technology corporations and institutions of learning.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED we stand united in opposition to all forms of censorship, all efforts to stifle Americans’ First Amendment rights, and stand unequivocally for the rights ensured by the Constitution of the United States of America.
