Martin Luther King III says his father would be ashamed that Georgia lawmakers are trying to stop free speech


This is a letter from Martin Luther King III:

Extremist lawmakers in Georgia’s legislature are pushing a bill designed to intimidate those who would engage in protest activities, such as picketing or sit-ins.

This is an effort to silence protesters who are standing up for economic justice.

My father, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., died fighting for economic justice.  Before his assassination in 1968, one of the ways he supported striking sanitation workers in Memphis was by joining them on the picket line.

It’s shocking to me that 44 years after my father’s death, extremist legislators are still trying to silence peaceful protesters.  My father would not back down from opposing this bill, and we cannot either.

That’s why I created a petition to the Georgia House and Senate and Governor Nathan Deal on, which says:

We urge all Georgia lawmakers to oppose SB 469. This bill restricts the free speech rights of Georgians.

It burdens small businesses by forcing them to issue additional notices to their employees, and it puts extra strain on our already-stretched public safety forces.  We need lawmakers to focus on real solutions to our jobs crisis, not push bills that take away our basic free speech rights.  Again, please vote NO on SB 469.
