Washington, January 7 (RHC)-- With just two weeks until Presidential Inauguration Day in the United States, the group Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, or ANSWER, finally knows where it will be permitted to protest.
The National Park Service granted ANSWER a permit for a small portion of the west end of Freedom Plaza in the nation’s capital. The agency says 24 other permit requests are still pending because Donald Trump’s inaugural committee has not confirmed which locations it does not plan to use.
Attorney Carl Messineo with the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund said that Trump's people "are trying to disrupt protest organizing and to sanitize the parade route of the kind of dissent that organized planning creates. The presidency may soon belong to Donald Trump, but the public space belongs to the people."
