The Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) announced they will be organizing a free speech gamer rally at the U.S. Supreme Court on November 2, 2010, the day oral arguments will be heard regarding the controversial ‘violent video game case,’ Schwarzenegger v. EMA.

On the heels of the ECA’s recent submission of their amicus brief (friend of the court document) and gamer petition to the Court, the gamer rally is a call to arms for all video game consumers who support First Amendment protected speech.

“This will be a historic day for gamers and the video game industry as a whole, and we greatly appreciate everyone who has taken action on this pivotal issue,” said Jennifer Mercurio, Vice President and General Counsel for the ECA. “Video games, like any other form of entertainment, should be protected under our First Amendment and now is the time to stand up and let our collective voices be heard.”

The rally being held prior to the hearings will begin at 9:00am EST on November 2, 2010 at the United States Supreme Court building (1 First Street, NE, Washington DC).
