ALEC: First Ag-Gag Victim Faces Jail Time

The 12 Ag-Gag bills introduced in 2012-2013 are based on an ALEC model, and a 25-year old from Utah now faces jail time for filming a slaughterhouse across the street.

This corporate-sponsored attack on freedom of speech is also an attack on a capitalist economy that depends on well-informed citizens to choose freely.

Right-wing extremists only care about the constitution when the second amendment faces a serious backlash. In fact, Florida’s Stand Your Ground law that led to Trayvon Martin’s death was also based on an ALEC model.
