    They are not merely protesting.
    They are subverting the rule of law.
    Prosecute them for trespass
    Civil lawsuits for trespass.
    Get injunctions and prosecute for contempt of court.
    No plea- bargaining. Go for lengthy jail terms.
    Bankrupt them with legal fees.
    Go after Amnesty International
    It’s supporting law breakers?
    Not its original mandate.
    Take away tax status.
