The safety of organizing protests in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas has been compromised following the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear McKesson v. Doe. This choice upholds a lower court ruling that threatens the ability to arrange mass protests in these states.

According to the lower court’s decision, protest organizers now face severe financial repercussions if any attendee engages in illegal actions during the protest.

While this outcome may be temporary, as the Supreme Court did not outright support the Fifth Circuit’s decision undermining First Amendment rights, it remains the prevailing law in a significant portion of the American South for the time being.
