Sigh. No Free Speech For the National Democratic Convention-Unless You're Behind a Fence

7 August 2008 at 11:10:38 AM

because, you know, there's no such thing as being able to REALLY voice your opinion where, uh, people can HEAR AND SEE YOU.

Wrote about this the other day and yesterday the judge in the case rendered her opinion.

DENVER - A federal judge declined Wednesday to change security restrictions for protesters at the Democratic National Convention, concluding that parade routes and a demonstration zone established by the city don't infringe on their free speech rights. ...

Krieger noted that the security plan is designed to protect convention-goers and the public from attacks involving explosives and weapons, to prevent unlawful or violent protests, to ensure emergency access and to preserve orderly traffic around Denver.

She said a demonstration zone, which protest groups have dubbed the "freedom cage," is designed so convention delegates can see and hear those inside. Delegates will be within 200 feet of the demonstration zone during a portion of their walk to the Pepsi Center, the judge said in her ruling.

Now, you might say that this is a City of Denver/protestor issue, but where are the statements from the Democratic Party?
