Does anyone have any information on the new law

(passed almost unaniously) that criminalizes political protests? On RT tee vee, they were saying that political protesting is now a felony. I do know that the 1st ammendment to the constitution guarantees us this right (obligation) to peacefully assemble and seek redress for our grievances. I find that if a new law, criminalizing our rights as concerned citizens, has passed, then our only recourse would be an eventual civil war that the 99% could not hope to win. Please, someone educate me.

1. I have no idea. If this had happened it would be all over the Internets

so I kinda think it didn't.

Oh, wait. This might be what you're referring to: http://rt.com/usa/news/348-act-tresspass-buildings-437/

It covers only certain protests on federal property, apparently. Still, I suspect it may not pass constitutional muster.

5. Thanks for the information.

I do find that this law is further infringing on our 1st ammendment rights. Thankfully (I hope) not as bad (yet) as I was led to believe.
