Permitting My Parade
July 25th, 2006

There has been considerable criticism of the citys proposed new policy regarding parade permits, which are almost universally seen as an effort to clamp down on public protest. Now Ezekial Edwards of the Bronx Defenders, writing in the DMI Blog, argues that the policy would create some very strange new parades that under the new rules would be forced to get such a permit
Two Elderly People Crossing the Street When the Sign Says ‘Don’t Walk’ Parade”;
“Four Little Kids Riding Their Scooters on the Sidewalk Parade;
“5th Grade Class Trip to the Natural History Museum Parade”

    The comment period for these bizzare and oppressive proposed rule changes is open until August 23rd, 2006.

    Send comments to: Asst. Dept. Comm. Thomas P. Doepfner, NYPD, I Police Plaza, Rm. 1406, NYNY 10038,

    There will be a hearing on these rule changes at 6 PM, on August 23rd at 1 Police Plaza.

    I suggest we read the rule, think about it and tell NYPD what we think.
