Last summer the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the federal law that criminalized â€œmaterial supportâ€ for terrorism. But defenders of civil liberties warn that people can be jailed for nonviolent speech, preemptive prosecution, or thoughtcrime. On Saturday in Tampa, activists held a workshop: Wake up call for civil liberties. It featured panelists like Jess Sundin, a peace activist whose house was raided by the FBI, and law professor Peter Erlinder, the former head of the National Lawyers Guild.
