Darth Ashcroft: Copyright infringement is your best protest dollar!
From Boing Boing
Remember the Calvin and Hobbes strip where Calvin gives himself his own music-track to accompany his comings and goings? Protestors are applying that to Darth Ashcroft, playing the Imperial March when he puts in appearances.
Ashcroft was bombarded by cries of “Shame!” and the sound of the “Imperial Death March” from the movie “Star Wars” as he entered a meeting with law enforcement officials in Faneuil Hall.
And oh yes, thanks to Ashcroft, methamphetamine, simple fraud, and other such things can now be considered terrorism, so you can be jailed indefinitely and they needn’t bother with those pesky laws and Constitution and stuff.
The complaint that anti-terrorism legislation is being used to go after people who aren’t terrorists is just the latest in a string of criticisms.
More than 150 local governments have passed resolutions opposing the law as an overly broad threat to constitutional rights.
In 2004, remember, regime change starts at home.
