The RNC is notorious for stifling free speech. Remember "Free Speech Zones"?
The NYPD tracked every planned action and set up traps. As marches began, police would emerge from their hiding places — building vestibules, parking garages, or vans — and corral the dissenters with orange netting that read 'POLICE LINE – DO not CROSS,' establishing areas they ironically called 'ad-hoc free speech zones.' One by one, protesters were arrested and detained—some for nearly two days."
So what do we do about it? Get corralled to the other side of town? Wander in separately, then form up at their front door? Set ourselves up for an altercation that can only end badly for everyone involved?
I know Adam doesn't mind getting arrested for a good cause. A lot of others would lose their jobs, and likely have a hard time replacing them, if they were arrested.
All of that said, is there even an option of getting a permit for such an event?
