The event is set to take place on November 2 at 9:00 am at the US Supreme Court Building, with the ECA calling on gamers to join the rally "in support of free speech."

ECA Rallies Gamers at the U.S. Supreme Court

On November 2, the United States Supreme Court will be hearing the case Schwarzenegger v. EMA. This is the first time that the Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on any state law attempting to restrict or ban the sale of video games. Until now, all of those laws have been struck down, but we can't guarantee that the Supreme Court will agree.

That is why we're asking you to join the ECA for a rally in support of free speech and to demonstrate that you're not afraid to show it!
