Citizens For Free Speech (CFFS) announced the beginning of operations to build a national movement to defend Free Speech and rights established under the First Amendment. These rights include freedom of the press, the unhindered expression of religion, the right to peaceably assemble and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
"Censorship in America is running rampant over citizens' rights defined under the First Amendment," said Executive Director Patrick Wood, "big tech companies like Google, Facebook, Youtube and Twitter are actively suppressing all other viewpoints except their own narrow interpretation of what society ought to be."
Wood anticipates a series of projects in 2018, beginning with the creation and launching of a new social network platform for activists to connect with each other, their groups and events within their local community. "Transparency, networking and access are important keys to elevating First Amendment rights", said Wood.
The anticipated name for the social network is LocalActivist.org, which will also offer basic training for activists who desire it.
CFFS also intends to build a coalition of radio and media organizations to present a common voice in addressing censorship to local, state and national government officials.
