Aviation Justice Express tour 2011

Defend UK activists’ right to speak — and our right to hear them

When Aviation Justice’s invited guest speaker John Stewart was interrogated and deported at New York’s JFK airport last week, it generated shockwaves in the US and UK. When a respected mainstream environmentalist is questioned about his work, forced to defend himself against charges of intent to incite essentially armed environmental terrorism, and prevented from crossing borders, it sends the signal that none of us are safe from ideological exclusion. That’s why hundreds of people from the US and UK (including many elected officials) are standing up for John, as he tries one more time to get a visa to participate in the American lecture tour we’ve set up for him.

Support our speakers, support free speech, and stand against policies of ideological exclusion—please sign this open letter to the US State Department.
