The other people that want to drive their cars and ride the busses on the roads the "protesters" are marching upon have the equal right to not have their personal business intruded upon by these protesters.
Thus it's necessary for someone, and the government is the obvious body, to provide the balance so that the rights of all are respected without harm to others. Thus permits are required for large protests so the government can prepare the streets for safe pedestrian traffic, for example.
There's nothing wrong with that, the protesters have to recognize their lack of a right to intrude on other citizens just because they want to.
