Update: the statement is now posted on the Illinois ACLU website here.


To: Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee
Re: Senate Joint Resolution 59
Date: 3/25/14

The ACLU of Illinois opposes Senate Joint Resolution 59, a resolution that calls upon all Illinois college and university presidents to publicly condemn academic boycotts.

A boycott is an important and powerful form of protected expressive association protected by the First Amendment. Speech and nonviolent picketing in support of a boycott encompasses the practice of people sharing common views banding together to achieve a common end, a practice deeply embedded in the American political process. By this collective effort, individuals can make their views known when, individually, their voices would be faint or lost. In emphasizing the importance of the freedom of association in guaranteeing the right of people to make their voices heard on public issues, the U.S. Supreme Court has noted that effective advocacy of both public and private points of view, particularly controversial ones, is undeniably enhanced by group association, NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co., 458 U.S. 886 (1982).

There is no basis in law or policy to exempt academic institutions from boycotts. Would Illinois support a resolution guarding Bob Jones University from a boycott when, in the 1970’s because of its interpretation of Biblical principles regarding interracial dating, Bob Jones University completely excluded black applicants? We expect not.

The State is free to express its view of the appropriateness of any particular boycott, but the vice is not the form of expressive association (a boycott) or its generic target (an academic institution) but the position of the institution/sponsoring government. More speech is the answer, as usual, to the correctness or legitimacy of a boycott.

I believe that every motorcycle sports enthusiasts have a beloved motorycle bike, it is pretty cool shell publicize their personality, to attract the attention of countless people. The following share with how to replace my Honda fairings and under what circumstances save the most money, but also get the fastest delivery.

We all know that racing season are generally concentrated in January to Apir, this time presumably every bike owners consider replacing the fairing, No matter yours’ suzuki fairings or Yamaha fairings. So that we are almost at the same time to order from factory, because motorcycle fairings made in advance, a sudden surge in factory orders, painting job speed accordingly become very slow. Meanwhile motorcycle fairing is large parcel,for example kawasaki fairing, Ducati fairing, etc, the volume is very large. Freight company is very annoying such goods, they only like heavy and small items. In the case of such a fixed route, they generally first select transporting heavy small items.

Therefore, we should avoid the peak period, select the off-season replacement. For example Triumph fairing. So we do not worry, you can choose a little slower, cheaper shipping methods, very economical, but also can quickly receive the goods!
