Synopsis of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act
Odette Wilkens, Esq.

Time:
3 PM

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, just signed into law in November, 2006, seriously threatens the First Amendment rights of U.S. citizens to advocate for animals. Although the Act was ostensibly enacted to stem terrorism, it remarkably punishes acts of civil disobedience causing no harm or damage. Indeed, individuals participating in demonstrations, undercover investigations, whistleblowing, boycotts or even sending emails may potentially be criminalized under this Act. The Act also increases the government's wiretapping authority.
