Apparently the mayor and city council of Argo have suspended their operating rules and placed new and ornerous restrictions on the RIGHT TO ASSEMBLE. I'd like to remind the mayor and city council that what they have done is in DIRECT VIOLATION of Amendment I in the Bill of rights which reads:
Bill of Rights
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Here is a photo from the Save Argo website that confirms they passed a new rule on the right to protest.
Now, I don't live in Argo or Springville. I don't even think I have ever even been through them.....but, if someone will let me know when they plan to protest I will show up with bell's on. And, if you are from this area and want to protest then here is my advice.
YOU DO NOT NEED A PERMIT TO GATHER IN A PUBLIC PLACE LIKE A PARK, SIDEWALK, RIGHT OF WAY, CITY HALL OR THE COURTHOUSE. READ THE CONSTITUTION. GET YOUR SIGNS AND YOUR ASSES 'IN THE STREET' AND ACT LIKE AMERICANS. I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND THAT SOMEONE CONTACT A CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER AND MAYBE EVEN THE ACLU ABOUT THIS NEW ORDINANCE PASSED BY THE CITY COUNCIL. THEY TEND TO FROWN UPON SUCH THINGS!!
