Freedom of speech

How far can speech go?

March Forward! is an affiliate of the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism). Along with others in the Coalition, we are organizing against the Iraq and Afghanistan war while fighting for social and economic justice at home—including the struggle against racism and all forms of discrimination and bigotry. March Forward! operates based on the belief that real change comes through struggle and mass action.

In 2008, veterans and active-duty service members who had been seasoned activists and leaders in the movement against the Iraq war joined together to form March Forward! Our aim is to unite all those who have served and who currently serve in the U.S. military, and who want to stand up for our rights and for that which is right!

How far can speech and activism go without incurring criminal liability for both the active member and the civilian when encouraging disobedience to orders and desertion?  Can there be a court-martial under the UCMJ for the active duty personnel, a recall for others still subject to recall?

A Real Anti-War Movement, argues blogger Mary Wentworth.
