This is what I sent:

re: anti-war and peace protests.

You might take a look at the url's I've offered and decide if those organizations are the type you wish to provide aid and comfort to.

They each provide links to the other. Don't forget N.I.O.N.

Peaceful protest is the right of every American. When those protests turn violent and advocate the overthrow of the government during a time of war, something must be said and done.

For your consideration:

U.S. Constitution

Article III, Section 3: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

Sedition: rebellion or incitement: actions or words intended to provoke or incite rebellion against government authority, or such a rebellion.

The U.S. Sedition Act

Whoever, when the United States is at war, shall willfully...promote the success of its enemies, or shall willfully...incite insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or shall willfully... utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the...military or naval forces of the United States...or advocate, teach, defend, or suggest the doing of any of the acts or things in this section enumerated and whoever shall by word or act support or favor the cause of any country with which the United States is at war or by word or act oppose the cause of the United States therein, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment for not more than twenty years, or both.
