My Testimony to Congress: Protect Free Speech from Baseless Corporate Lawsuits | Greenpeace USA



Oil and gas companies have hijacked our legal system in an attempt to silence voices like ours. We must stop this rash of SLAPPs — Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation — that threaten free speech and truth in America. We were SLAPPed for uplifting voices from the Indigenous led movement at Standing Rock, but we will not be silenced. We will fight these suits–not just for ourselves, but for everyone who uses their voices to speak out for a livable planet.
