UTAH DUMBS DOWN "TERRORISM" DEFNINITION

11 Feb 2002

The Utah House of Representatives on Feb. 4 passed Bill 100; a new law which would criminalize acts of protest and civil disobedience, such as holding a sit-in on a company's steps, as "commercial terrorism." A blurb about the measure on the web site of Philadelphia's Kensington Welfare Rights Union asks, "Would these people be considered terrorists in Utah?" over photos of Rosa Parks, Mohandas Gandhi and the Greensboro sit-in.
