Urgent : City of San Diego Revokes Permit for US /Mexico Border Demonstration

Urgent :

City of San Diego Revokes Permit for US /Mexico Border Demonstration

April 18. 2001

San Diego, CA - The City of San Diego has revoked the permit for a non-violent demonstration in opposition to the FTAA. The protest planned for Saturday April 21, at Border Field State Park on the US / Mexico Border, is a show of solidarity in opposition to the Free Trade Area of the Americas and The Summit of the Americas. This is one of three events planned for the weekend by the Anti - FTAA coalition.

With only 72 hours until the planned action San Diego organizers must scramble to find a peaceful resolution. Local organizers plan a legal challenge. The city of San Diego revoked the permit on a technicality. Now with thousands of activists on the way, the fate of this peaceful protest is uncertain. .

A citizen’s right to Freedom of Speech is being suppressed. Your support is needed and you can help by contacting the following city agencies ASAP:

The City of San Diego Park Department Special Events office telephone number is (858) 642-0407.

The Mayor’s office (Dick Murphy) can be reached at (619) 236-6330 and the City Council is available at (619) 236-6330.

The Sheriff’s Office telephone number is (858) 565-5200

protest anyway

by LA Thursday, Apr. 19, 2001 at 8:54 PM

Rally Anyway!!!!

A peaceful demonstration in Solidarity with quebec is paramount.

They cant stop us.

When the police is on our side...

I once rallied in my high school. we marched straight onto our main blvd. What did the cops due???

They marched in front of us to protect us with no intentions of stoppings us. as we circled the city and back into our high school. There was a sense of relief from all three sides. the opresser the defenders and the opressed

Opressors no longer opressing
defenders defending
opressed sent free

any details?

by Gretchen Friday, Apr. 20, 2001 at 6:23 AM
gbegley@umail.ucsb.edu (805) 971-5931 PO Box 11679, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA 93107

Does anybody have any more info about this? Why was the permit revoked? Do we have any chance of getting it reinstated? This sounds like a pathetic excuse for the city of San Diego to arrest peaceful activists. Everybody please bombard these phone lines with complaints any maybe they'll listen!!
Peace.

unconstitutional

by jk Friday, Apr. 20, 2001 at 8:05 AM

This revocation of the permit is plainly unconstitutional. The demonstration is protected by our right to freedom of assembly. I'm hoping that the ACLU or National Lawyer's Guild are filing a suit.

This has happened with other anti-globalization protests, and with the DNC protests this summer. It's a curveball that the police throw to discourage people from showing up. Fortunately, it usually backfires, because the revocations are unconstitutional.

Um, sources?

by the other JK Friday, Apr. 20, 2001 at 8:10 AM

So the sum total of our information that the permit was revoked was the statement of one guy who none of us (well, at least not me) know? I think I'd've wanted a little more verification before making it the top story on IndyMedia.

And if this report is true, it says that the protest at the Border Park is the one that has had its permit revoked. The noon-whenever protest at Larsen Park is not effected at all (theoretically), this revocation would only effect the 3pm-whenever protest at the Border Park.

But yeah, if anyone has more info on the truth or falsity about the permit revocation, I'd certainly like to see it.

Whose World? OUR World!

by Earthling Friday, Apr. 20, 2001 at 8:20 AM

We, as humans, are all part of this whole earth. Capitalist scum made up the idea of property, private space, etc. But we are all part of this world, and we all have the right to share it together. Capitalist scum made up the idea of having to pay money to have access to parts of our earth. But it is all of ours, not the property of a few rich white conservative men. Fuck that bullshit! Any of us as earthlings have the right to go to any park we want. I don't see the capitalist scum making Disney or Sea World get permits because of all the people gathering there.

EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS AS HUMANS! ENHABIT THE PARTS OF THE EARTH YOU WANT TO ENHABIT! DON'T LET CAPITALIST SCUM STEAL OUR WORLD FROM US AND DENY US OUR RIGHT TO OCCUPY OUR HOME!

permit re-instated

by praxis36 Friday, Apr. 20, 2001 at 5:56 PM

Just spoke with one of the organizers of the protest...From what I understand the city revoked the permit earlier, but re-instated it after recieving a barrage of phone calls. The phone calls and the legal team were key in getting the permit back . Apparently the city was overwhelmed by the number of calls and pleaded with organizers to "stop the calls", now that the permit has been re-issued.

revolution is illegal

Rights? Free speech? Please be honest about the fantastic power held by our rulers, the nature of their rule, and what it's going to take for us and the earth to survive. Whatever it is, signifigant parts of it will be illegal.

ENHABIT THE PARTS OF THE EARTH YOU WANT TO ENHABIT!

Wow great idea but what do you do when someone is already inhabiting it? Drive them out with your AK-47s and do a bit of Ethnic Cleansing.

You know there was this guy called Hitler you might of heard of him? See he had the idea that the German people had a right to the lands of the east because he thought they were superior to the slavs. So he used brute force to get what he wanted and resulted in tens of millions of deaths.

Its nice to see that people are still reading his works :)
