New Anti Free Speech Ordinance on Tuesday's City Council Agenda
- This ordinance has been changed to accommodate many of the ACLU/NC's objections, specifically no requirement of a permit for
a protest. However, it still has some very restrictive portions: (1) a curfew from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. (no curfew now) and (2) a buffer area around entrances will sounds reasonable but really is not and (c) a host of other "rules" from not being able to give food to someone, to not being able to sit around the fountain, to not have tables to disseminate literature any closer than about 50-75 feet from the building (essentially not in the plaza but the outside sidewalks). Also, if someone has the $$ for a permit, it will be keep those without a permit away from the area because those with permits/with money will take precedence over those without means.
