Anti-Union Bill Set To Ban Protesting

Perhaps some conscientious, peaceful, American protesters are thinking of protesting outside the home of some big CEO, or stage a sit-in inside a bank. Well, under legislation introduced by state Sen. Don Balfour, the former could result in a $1,000 fine. And the latter? Well, that could get them charged with a felony.

Yes, despite the fact that Georgia has some of the weakest labor laws and lowest union memberships in the country, the Snellville Republicans wants to further clamp down on the organizations. And it looks like the Occupy movement won’t get a pass either.
