I got my comments in yesterday.

The form is really easy to use.

Just do it!

Comment:
Dear Administrators:

I am deeply concerned about the proposed changes to the use of park areas, particularly in the District of Columbia.

The park areas of the nation’s capital have historically been a venue for protest by citizens concerned about government policy and cultural institutions. In our fast-moving times, it is essential for these areas to be made available on a timely basis for marches, rallies, and protests.

The proposed changes amount to a threat to free expression, which is protected by the first amendment to the constitution.

Stefan Jones,

There is a COMMENT button at the top right hand side on the proposed regulation page from 1st link (I missed it at first.)

For those who wish to comment:

It’s especially egregious that they’re proposing to limit protesting around the monument to MLK Jr., since the proposed limits would prevent MLK Jr.'s famous march on Watchington.


#6

Ah good. Rules to return to civility - where the peasants can’t protest the removal of their right to protest because of the removal of their right to protest!


#7

I totally love that Oregon’s senator is getting the word out.


#8

I wonder what what the NPS stance on guillotines is?

So just move the protests to in front of the Russian embassy. Same diff.


#10

Comments will be considered a form of protest, and will not be allowed unless a permit for them is applied for and paid in advance.


#11

Gentrification.


#12

as if they’ve considered anything said thus far

How did Oregon manage to get two excellent Senators? That’s cheating somehow!

eta: Do they steal all the sane ones from Wisconsin?

No concealed carry.
