Freepers a call for help! Local government to silence my freedom of speech!
La Crosse TEA Party ^

Posted on 10/01/2013 8:09:30 PM PDT by ThE_RiPpEr.

The right to free speech is under attack by our local government that wishes to help shut down the Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment movement.

The Town of Campbell, La Crosse County, Wisconsin is trying to pass an ordinance to ban free speech in the name of “safety”.

The enemies of our Constitution are claiming it is a traffic safety issue when we are protesting on a pedestrian bridge over the I-90 interstate. They claim the road construction a couple of miles away presents a hazard to safety. When asked if they would remove the ordinance when the construction was finished they answered they would NOT remove it.

TEA Party members contacted the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and talked to their top people and they said there is no safety issue and it is no different than having billboards along the interstate.

The Town of Campbell claims it is not political; however the Town of Campbell Treasurer Chadwick Hawkins was the one calling 911 to report “rioters and protestors are amassing at the base of the foot bridge”.

The Town of Campbell’s attorney was also recorded calling our attorney telling him “we were being issued citations as he speaks”. Law enforcement never issued any citations as our attorney responded that he would sue the Town of Campbell in Federal court if that happened. So now they are attempting to change the law to shut us up....

We are not allowed to stand on street corners with recall signs. They also made that illegal!

These people passed an ordinance that only allows a 12 inch by 12 inch sign on my property and it must be set back so far from the road that nobody can read it.

This is why we are asking for Freepers to help us fight these enemies of the Constitution.

Make signs that are inexpensive and plentiful during the day.

Put them up in the early morning rush in as many places as possible. Then go home to make more signs.
