SAVE THE RAVE
Oppose the New Rave Act (AB74)
Assemblywoman Fiona Ma proposed legislation yesterday to ban large electronic music events in California. In her own words “The introduction of AB 74 is the first step toward eliminating these dangerous events”. Read the full text of the proposed legislation at the end of this email.
Fiona Ma’s legislation is just one part of a larger agenda by the police and policy makers to shut down electronic music events in California. Our music and culture is being discriminated against and if we don’t stand up and fight, they will succeed.
Save The Rave is a group of electronic music supporters who are organizing to fight this and other anti-electronic music policy through lobbying, protests, media and whatever else is necessary.
Join our Facebook group so that we can communicate and work with you! We will need your help to fight back against these policies and show the State of California that we will NOT tolerate being discriminated against!!

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
SECTION 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the Anti-Raves Act of 2011.
SEC. 2. Section 421 is added to the Penal Code, to read: 421. (a) Any person who conducts a public event at night that includes prerecorded music and lasts more than three and one-half hours is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or twice the actual or estimated gross receipts for the event, whichever is greater.
(b) Subdivision (a) shall not apply to a public event on private property if the entity that conducts the public event has a business license to operate a bar, club, theater, entertainment venue, or other similar business, or to conduct sporting events, and conducting the public event is consistent with the business license.
(c) For purposes of this section, “night” means that period between sunset and sunrise.
SEC. 3. No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
wenn der “anti-raves act” in kalifornien durchgesetzt wird, sind dort elektronische tanzmusik-veranstaltungen praktisch verboten oder unmöglich.
