Some political speech gets the shaft in Georgia. Georgia governor, Sunny Perdue, in an unusual move, 'pre-emptively' declared a state of emergency last week that will last through through June 20, the entirety of the G8 conference. In conjunction, the Brunswick City Council amended its laws last week to give police authority to terminate protests during a state of emergency. The ACLU is suing the Bunswick City Council. The G8 Summit will carry on as planned, and the rights of the citizens to dissent will not.

Those interested in the protest should look here or here for more information.
