Protesting in New York

[ #20713 ]

I wonder how this came out.

Just to show that I am more libertarian than the Libertarians, I'll mention that if all those pieces of property were actually owned by someone, the only permission you'd need to hold a protest would be that of the owner of the piece of property, not the government.

  • I think the article mentioned Central Park. If that is where they wanted to assemble then they need a permit to do so on that specific area. In one sense he is wrong. If you want to parade down a street, you need a permit. That does not infringe on the right to assemble. There are a whole bunch of reasons a permit is need none of which denies the assembly right.
    • Yeah, it is long-established precedent that the government can require permits for demonstrations if there is an important government interest in doing so, the regulations are content-neutral, etc.
