Quote from Judge Wiley B. Rutledge,

"It was not by accident or coincidence that
the rights to freedom in speech and press
were coupled in a single guaranty
with the rights of the people peaceably
to assemble and to petition for redress of grievances.
All these, though not identical, are inseparable.
They are cognate rights, and therefore
are united in the first Article’s assurance."
