All around the United States, peaceful protesters are being met with armed resistance from local authorities, and restrictive anti-protest laws criminalizing dissent.

Across the United States, more than 60 anti-protest bills have been proposed in the last two years. While the far majority haven't been passed, there's a clear attempt by local governments to suppress dissent amid massive waves of discontent since President Trump took office. Not only that, peaceful demonstrators are being confronted by militarized police forces equipped with military tanks, water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets, drones, and more.

At a time of intense debate about racist policies, killings of unarmed citizens and anger over immigration raids, Americans' right to protest is under direct assault from the powers that be.
