Central Park Permit Denied, Protest Will Go On!
26 Aug 2004
From the UFPJ Website:

WE ARE MARCHING! We are very disappointed in the New York State Supreme Court ruling, denying our request to rally in Central Park. But make no mistake: Our August 29 protest march is still happening! We now have a final agreement with the City for the full route of our legal, peaceful march, which will take us directly past Madison Square Garden, the site of the Republican Convention.

To see all the events that will be happening on the great lawn despite the supreme court ruling, including Rev. Billy's mass marriages who will recite the first amendment, see the calendar at http://www.counterconvention.org/phpicalendar/month.php .

The protests will go on!

You can read the corporate news accounts of how we didn't get a permit below, but since when was true protest regulated by the state?

CENTRAL PARK TWELVE NOON-SUNDAY, AUGUST 29TH
26 Aug 2004
NADA TO THE MAYOR, COPS AND BUSH!
Re: Nada to Central Park
26 Aug 2004
Ditto.
Re: Nada to Central Park
26 Aug 2004
I don't mean to be a pain, but you know that "nada" means "nothing," right? I don't think you're really using it correctly here.
Good. The more who show up, the more will be arrested.
26 Aug 2004
The permit has been denied. Therefore, attendance of an illegal protest rally WILL result in arrests. That is very clear, and anyone attending or leading any such rally illegally will be arrested. That means that there will be fewer protesters at the RNC itself.

I think its great. "Nada" away!
