Call in to the City of BP

by Read the 1st amendment. Saturday, Jun. 18, 2005 at 10:41 PM

Call the city. urge them to repeal the permit to protest law.

Mayor Manuel Lozano

Councilmember William (Bill) Van Cleave

Councilmember David Olivas

Mayor Pro Tem Ricardo Pacheco

Councilmember Marlen Garcia

Stephanie Scher, City Attorney

Sid Mousavi, Interim CEO

Chief Mark Kling, Baldwin Park Police Department


Regardless of your politics. No one should support this resolution. The City should repeal the resolution immediately to avoid legal action.

Whatever resolution they make, no local law can override the right to free speech and the right to peaceable assembly as stated in the 1st amendment of the Bill of Rights. To require a person or a group to get a permit to exercise their constitutional rights is unlawful. The City of BP has made a big mistake.

For reference:

US Bill of Rights, Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

This is not a left vs right issue. This is a free speech issue. Free speech is a basic human right. Both sides should see this. This new law hurts everyone.
I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it
