For the benefit of others, I present the text of the 1st amendment.
"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."
Where does it say in there that a permit is required? Where does it
say that I must ask the government's permission politely to disagree
with it? Nowhere, and through civil disobedience we can put these
"laws" where they belong, a sad note in the history books.
We have a just right to assembly and speech. If the city wants to
stand in the way of this, let them. The Constitution trumps city law,
not the other way around.
