Summary: Oklahoma passed a broadly worded law that enables the state to fine and/or imprison protesters for interfering with the operation of fossil fuel facilities, and also impose heavy fines on organizations deemed to have facilitated the protests.
Relevance: This law is part of an emerging trend by some state governments to punish and intimidate protesters in the wake of the Standing Rock anti-pipeline action.
Action: Support protest movements and demand that the courts and federal government protect our First Amendment rights.
